In case you haven’t noticed, we have a thing for modern farmhouses. We’re talking about the trendy home design that Chip and Joanna Gaines from HGTV’s “Fixer Upper” catapulted into mainstream society. Think barn doors, reclaimed ceiling beams, shiplap, and neutral colors. This brand new two-story Springdale home is a perfect example.
The home’s exterior features a mix of crisp white vinyl siding and neutral-toned stone veneer, which contrast nicely with the black garage door and black window frames. We’re also big fans of the cedar gable brackets that accent the home’s three peaks and match the front porch’s cedar ceiling. A paved walkway leads from the driveway to the front porch, where you’ll find a stunning 8-foot-tall double-entry black front door.
Step inside and immediately notice an iron and cedar staircase straight ahead and a formal dining room to the left, which might just be our favorite room of the house. With dark sage walls, cedar ceiling beams, and a starburst-like light fixture, it certainly stands out from the rest of first floor’s overall neutral color scheme. Just past the staircase, the family room and kitchen flow into each other to make up the main living space. Notable features in the family room include a rustic chandelier overhead, vaulted ceilings, and a sleek fireplace under the mounted TV with built-in benches on either side.
Keeping with the clean, neutral-toned design, the eat-in kitchen features white cabinets with iron hardware, white granite countertops, and a stylish white sliding barn door that hides a walk-in pantry. Other perks include a custom cedar herringbone range hood and a blue tile backsplash that adds a pop of color to the space. The best part? The kitchen connects to the dining room via a small bar station-slash-hallway, complete with open shelving and just enough counter space to make a cocktail—or three.
The first floor is also home to the master suite. In the bedroom, a dark brown shiplap accent wall ties in the farmhouse theme. The master bath is dreamy, too, with heated tile floors, double sinks, and a walk-in shower with two showerheads.
Upstairs, the second floor landing offers space for a small sitting area and flows into the remaining three bedrooms. Downstairs, a fully finished basement provides plenty of entertaining space, which can also be taken outside, thanks to a back patio and spacious backyard. Farmhouse living never sounded so sweet.
