Inspired by the homeowner’s California roots, this new NoDa home blends Queen Anne-inspired design with rustic Carolina touches to create a dreamy modern farmhouse.

The home: 3,243 square feet, 5 beds, 3.5 baths

Best room in the house: One of the client’s favorite (and specifically requested) features was the addition of a sitting room in which to enjoy their morning coffee together, THR’s design team says. The room receives a soft, dappled morning light that shines in through the canopy of the large oak tree in the front yard. A wood tongue and groove ceiling helps carry through the warmth of the oak flooring, and the fireplace with floating shelves on either side creates a cozy feeling that can be enjoyed year round.

Biggest splurge: The custom floating cedar vanity in the owner’s bathroom. The planks visually elongate the room, and the cedar cap on the backsplash, coupled with the choice in sconces over the mirrors, bring the cedar accent up the wall to tie it all together.

From the designer: “Nestled in the heart of NoDa on 35th street sits this custom home built for a family relocating from San Francisco. THR was asked to incorporate elements from the city the client was leaving behind and to build a new house that feels old.” — THR Design

020 Finalist- Modern Farmhouse exterior

Located on 35th Street in NoDa, the new-construction home was built to “look old” with added character like arched doorways.

2020 Finalist- Modern Farmhouse entry and living area

The owner’s requested a nook to drink their morning coffee.  THR created a room with big windows for light to flood in each morning, and the fireplace and shiplap ceiling make this room cozy and warm.

The sleek range hood and bulb light fixtures over the island balance the kitchen’s more rustic elements, like the floating wood shelves and black cabinet pulls. The end result is fresh and modern.

2020 Finalist- Modern Farmhouse living room

This home is full of natural light, especially in the living room. The narrow plank flooring and detailed millwork in the main living areas are gorgeous, too.

2020 Finalist- Modern Farmhouse mudroom

The mudroom has built in cubbies for coats, shoes, and more. I especially love the honeycomb flooring.

2020 Finalist- Modern Farmhouse bathroom

The custom cedar floating vanity was the biggest splurge — but also the best investment — the design team says.
