Brewer Hollow Farmhouse
Our Client loves the views along the long valley and across the rolling pastures of his 80-acre working farm where he raises angus cattle. Knowing this was an important feature of this site, we positioned the Brewer Hollow Farmhouse for the best view overlooking the valley running southeast to northwest.
He also wanted the house to appear as if it were built 100 years ago but with all the comfort features of today. We researched historic farmhouses of East Tennessee and Southern Virginia for appropriate window proportions, chimney styles, roof pitch and porches. The final design fits the farm as if it has been there all along.
The first floor has an entry hall and central stair flanked by formal dining and study in the front. The back of the house facing the valley has a casual kitchen and great room opening to the porch. The second floor contains three bedrooms and two full baths.
Wide plank wood floor, white trim, high ceilings and interior transom windows add to the farmhouse feeling. Tall exterior windows bring natural light and views of the farm into every room.
A back porch wraps three sides of the kitchen and great room on the valley side while an entry porch welcomes visitors into the front door. The wide porches provide protection from the sun and rain while also serving as the practical place to take off chore coats and farm boots at the end of the day.
