The possibilities are endless at 5633 Caruth Boulevard, a newly constructed modern farmhouse in the close-knit Devonshire community by luxury builder LRO Residential. Inside, natural elements such as wood, stone, iron, and glass combine with elegant design schemes, rustic details and contemporary touches to create a thoroughly appealing home for any style or taste. Fill it with modernist pieces, traditional finds, or eclectic antiques and treasures - all are welcome in this light and bright dream home.
Like most any example of a modern farmhouse, it has clean lines and a neutral color palette; but once inside, this home delights the senses with layers of niches, nooks, and refined designs and finishes. You’ll feel right at home around ornate touches like a gas fireplace with a 42-inch carved limestone surround. An iron front entrance door is simultaneously minimal and stately. Molding on the main floor’s soaring cathedral ceilings is an elegant nod to exposed rafters. And hand-scraped 4-inch white oak hardwood floors draw the eye toward the floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the home.
The kitchen is the heart of every farmhouse, and this one is no different. It’s a pleasure to deposit fresh finds from the farmers market on the large center island in the rustic grandeur of the chef’s kitchen. Centered directly beneath exposed wood beams, the workspaces are illuminated by industrial pendant lights. Put away your perishables in the Sub-Zero refrigerator, and later on, prep the family dinner on the marble counter and cook it all on the Wolf range. It will be easy to find everything you need behind the glass-paned cabinet fronts, inside the walk-in pantry, or around the corner in the butler’s pantry.
Near the front entrance you’ll find the formal dining, or morning room - a place to eat, rest, and relax with family or friends any time the mood strikes. In addition to this you’ll find a built-in office area, a mudroom, and a garage with room to park three cars. (Hello, vintage roadster!) With a laundry room just steps away from the garage entrance, it’s easy to get sorted and settled as soon as you arrive home.
The laundry room also offers access to the downstairs master suite, a stunning hideaway with an expansive, sun-lit walk-in closet and room enough for a sitting area. The master bath wows with marble hex tile flooring, 2-inch marble countertops along dual vanities, and a tub set against the dramatic backdrop of a floor-to-ceiling window.
Visitors also have a lovely place to retreat in the downstairs guest suite with adjoining bath. And the downstairs powder bath rises to greet you with a show stopping 2-inch-thick vanity and modernistic hex tile backsplash.
Outside, a covered patio heats up on cool nights with a wood-burning fireplace. Or, gain a bird’s-eye view of the festivities from the upstairs covered patio.
Another beautiful thing about this 21st-century take on a traditional farmhouse is its flexible layout. Choose to set up a work or craft station in either the upstairs or the downstairs study. Create a peaceful place to retreat in either the bonus room or the dedicated exercise room. Kick back in the upstairs game room to watch a movie alongside the built-in snack bar. Or escape to one of the three guest bedrooms with dedicated baths. The options for living and relaxing are boundless - all you have to do is choose.
