Much of contemporary architecture revolves around the concept of “living lightly on the land,” making new dwellings blend more seamlessly with the surrounding landscape and designing homes in such a way that nature can be brought inside via large windows and sliding glass doors while compelling the homeowner to step outside.
A newly constructed modern farmhouse in Santa Rosa’s Montecito Heights neighborhood embodies this design trend. The four-bedroom, three-bathroom, 3,112-square-foot home is currently listed for $1,895,000.
Wide plank floors throughout set the stage for relaxed Wine Country living. The home has a feeling of openness thanks to high ceilings, a great room, and large picture windows showcasing the surrounding trees. A linear fireplace brings warmth and modernity to the living room. A tranquil palette of whites and woods with black accents keeps the aesthetic calm and casual, yet elegant.
Lots of outdoor spaces—an outdoor kitchen, a large deck, and paths leading to seating nooks throughout the yard—offer options for enjoying the outdoors. Click through the above gallery for a peek inside.
