The Arcadia

Modern Farmhouse Transformation

The Arcadia is an award-winning transformation of a 1900s farmhouse into a beautiful, loft-like, modern farmhouse. Designed at the turn of the century, the home was originally configured for carriage dropoff, and various renovations over the years had made interior circulation confusing and uninviting. The new design reinvents the home’s organization and entry sequence by transforming the existing three-car basement garage into a gracious two-and-a-half-story foyer. A new, inviting staircase leads to the second-level foyer, beckoning visitors into the main living spaces of the house. The highlight of the renovation is the newly transformed kitchen, where a detailed coffered ceiling grid creates a focal connection between the kitchen sink, countertop island, and living room. The existing side porch was stripped, reclad, winterized, and transformed as a new sunlit breakfast alcove.
