Whitewashed Clapboard Farmhouse Retreat

slide1Tucked away on almost three acres, is this 1901 white clapboard farmhouse, with an historic barn and landscaped gardens.  The compound, in walking distance to the beach and town, is an ideal weekend escape for city dwellers to shed the stress, hustle and bustle of urban living.
The “comfort first” mantra, carried throughout the home and landscape, offers a light and airy dwelling for the contemporary family.  Vintage details abound throughout the home – a writing nook, wide-plank wood floors, period moldings, a porcelain and cast iron claw foot tub.  Yet through the use of a tight color palette the effect of a minimalist approach is achieved.  Every wall is painted in grayish-white and complementary hues as the depth of color changes from morning light to evening.
To allow the old and the antique to accommodate today’s living style, the kitchen ceiling was raised and the original wood beams left exposed. A bank of four windows were installed above the counter, with views across the garden to the property’s barn.  Counter space was added by replacing a clunky fridge with four under-counter refrigerated drawers.

The second level accommodates three bedrooms, bath and sitting room and carries the clean color palette throughout.  An oversize built-in day bed converted a first floor bedroom into a combination den and guest quarters with a bath.

The totality of the home, barn and property offer an opportunity to own an exquisite property with enormous upside possibilities where you can make your own mark on history!
