There are numerous aspects to consider when building a family home from scratch. From the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, to the size of the kitchen and dining room, as well as play areas and storage, the decisions can be endless. In addition, wouldn't it be great to have multiple areas where the kids and play and entertain their friends without taking over the entire house? Well, the farmhouse at Black Star Ranch has considered each of these needs and included a few wants as well in its design. The end result is a gorgeous home with plenty of rustic charm and lots of room to play.
The sprawling two-storey home features a white board-and-batten exterior, knotty wood door and sidelights and farmhouse lighting. The exterior color palette and material choices sets the stage beautifully for the interior of the home. Inside, white is the primary color, offset by handscraped hardwood floors and lofty, wood-accented ceilings. The kitchen and dining room is welcoming and open with white cabinetry and barn lighting. Textural elements such as the farmhouse table, brick backsplash and ceiling beams add character and depth. The great room houses an impressive stone fireplace surrounded by white built-ins. For kids and parents alike, a games room upstairs and a pool outback ensure that there is never a dull moment in this roomy Texan ranch house.
