This modern farmhouse feels fresh and sleek with vertical siding, abundant windows, and two eye-catching gables. Inside, the sightline directs your gaze from the foyer all the way through the great room and out to the rear porch, where an optional outdoor kitchen invites everyone out for barbecues. A snack bar in the kitchen creates a fun hangout zone, with the sink on the island so you can face your guests while rinsing veggies. For elegant dinners, the dining room sits near the front, not far from the butler’s pantry.

Three more bedrooms (one a private suite) sit on the opposite side of the home. Other thoughtful features include lockers near the powder bath, extra storage in the garage, and a generous bonus suite upstairs.
