Built by Artisan Builders and designed by Harrison Design, the 8,869-square-foot home replicates an Old American Farmhouse as a nod to Virginia’s rich countryside, while also offering all the amenities of modern living. By designing the home in parts, rather than as a whole, it appears to have been added onto over the years. The interior floor plan is an L shape, which was popular among early farmers because of the ease and efficiency of adding future rooms. This modern farmhouse offers light-filled interior rooms that blend old elements, such as reclaimed wood and antiques with new features, including top-of-the-line kitchen appliances. A gallery finished with stone from an old Virginia farmhouse and a library paneled in quarter-sawn oak are among the vintage touches. The exterior features covered porches, antique style lighting, and natural stone in a random, hand-cut pattern. Landscape design is by Fine Landscapes and sales by Yeonas & Shafran Real Estate.
“My partners and I are truly thrilled that Artisan Builders’ New Old Farmhouse in Mclean, Virginia has been selected as the 2015 DC Design House,” says Stephen Yeonas. “Our entire team is committed to making the event the best ever, while helping a great cause, Children’s National Health System.”
