“We wanted to replace our existing 19th century farmhouse with a new, modern, spacious version that provided for all of our farm activities and accommodated our growing family.”

Paddy and Carl Albright, homeowners

DESCRIPTION

The property is a 70-acre farm in Dingmans Ferry, Pennsylvania dating back to the 1800’s. The house site is adjacent to a large open field with a barn original to the farm, a pond, a large garden, fruit orchards, and surrounded by unspoiled Pennsylvania forest.

DESIGN

The new house reflects the vernacular architecture of farmhouses in the region with clean lines and the careful proportions of a Greek temple. Placing the house on the location of the original small farmhouse opposite the original 19th century barn helped maintain the character of the farm. Surrounded by a generous and inviting porch with panoramic views of the farm landscape, the interior is spacious with room for large family gatherings as well as private spaces for the owner’s collections, library, and quiet reading. The interior finishes include timber framing reclaimed from the original farmhouse, a dramatic fireplace constructed from locally sourced bluestone, locally sourced wood plank flooring, and complementary soapstone counters and sinks. The updated farmhouse also employs modern energy efficient features including high performance windows and an onsite ground mounted solar thermal system providing for both under floor radiant heating and hot water.
