Modern Farmhouse: Before & After

A modern farmhouse was born by popping the top and adding a 900 sq ft master suite.

A Modern Farmhouse comes to life with the help of our designer Cassy, along with KGA Studio Architect Paul Mahony, AIA. They totally redesigned this 4000 sq foot ranch which was built in the 1960’s. It had plenty of space but was low-slung and chopped up and very dark and dated. The homeowners, Matt and Alissa Joblon, wished for open-concept living, which is so popular now.

Traditional East Coast architectural details and a modern white-and-black palette are carried through both inside and out.

A modern farmhouse was created by raising the pitch of the roof, knocking out walls, vaulting ceilings, adding dormers to floodlight into the spaces.

The Joblon’s wanted a casual living space, with a simple modern design of black and white and a Cape Cod/Nantucket design style. Raising the pitch of the roof and knocking out walls to create a large open area in the middle of the home, was the key to updating the home. Vaulted ceilings add height and dimension, while the new dormers allow light to flood the new open spaces. A 900-square-foot master suite addition, as well as a new front porch and pergola in the back, expanded the indoor and outdoor living spaces.

After: The new open concept makes the kitchen the center of the home. A huge island, custom white painted cabinets, subway tile, and white quartz countertop contrast beautifully with the dark wood floors and rustic dining table.

After: A peaceful master bedroom with simple, clean finishes and quiet colors. A jeweled light fixture and long elegant draperies create a rustic yet glamorous feel to the room.
