Farm Chic

A custom remake of the farmhouse style. Conceived of early Southport, of privacy and the historic, this home evokes the calm of farm fields of yesterday and the crisp details of modern design today. A robust turret greets you as you come to the end of a stone drive. Inside, this turret holds both a private sitting room with fireplace downstairs and a circular bedroom above. Enter open, glass doors to the sunny foyer. You're standing on wide walnut hardwood floors throughout with a staircase standing in the space between you and the dining room. To your right, a wonderfully designed, functional kitchen and gathering space complete with a Chateau French stove from manufacturer La Cornue. Chat and serve over an 11-foot butcher block island with prep sink, subzero refrigerator and wine cooler, farm sink, custom cabinetry and more. You will step into the family room lit by wrought iron chandeliers that repeat to a fireplace wall with hidden entertainment cabinet. A beautiful sunroom sits between the family room and the outdoors. In fact, the west side of the house seeks out the sun in every room. French doors and oversized sliding doors let the outdoors into this open layout. Large wood sliding farm doors lead you from the foyer to private master quarters with quiet den, elegant trim details and gas fireplace, then to a first floor master suite meant to relax and secure. There's even a private outdoor patio for your morning coffee or afternoon tea.
