Modern Country HouseMODERN COUNTRY HOUSE AT POTTSBORO
This small but comfortable Modern Country House is for a small and practical family. It features a central gathering area as the heart of the house. Also, we designed it to enjoy the views of the backyard, adding a sizeable Covered Patio out of that gathering space to enjoy the outdoor living.
The Main Entrance is crowned by a gable and framed by white columns, beautiful trim work, and beams. Windows and a half-glassed door give the see-through effect that lets us see the backyard through the great room when standing at the front door. The Foyer is seamlessly incorporated into the Great Room. So, when we get it, we start to enjoy the open space and see the backyard. The Great Room lets the natural light come in from the Covered Patio facing south.
On the Exterior, we went with a traditional white Board & Batten. All the framing and doors are black with white casings. It brings accents all around the house. We went with a dark shingle roof that gives that modern and slick appeal to the house. A detailed trim work shows all around the house as accents and remembrance of the traditional Country house that inspired us.
