Modern meets traditional in this family farmhouse
Built on 15 acres of rural land in Cornwall, the Von Holstein family farmhouse is a new, energy-efficient home that takes advantage of the breathtaking country views. A modern take on a traditional farmhouse, the oak frame brings a cosy and inviting feel to the bright and spacious rooms.
The sandblasted oak frame features throughout the house, combining traditional framing with modern features such as the triangular window on the upper mezzanine level. The glazed barn style, vaulted, sitting room, extending from the rear of the property, enjoys views of the garden and pond.Read more
