Check out the details that make the white Goldenwood farmhouse cozy and inviting

Surrounded by corn fields and lush, mature trees is a two-story, white farmhouse on a section of land deemed Goldenwood Farm. The three-sided covered porch provides a reprieve from the hot summer sun while also acting as added living space when the weather cooperates. The exterior is awash in a crisp and clean white, from the siding to the porch columns and window trim. Two gooseneck sconces add a pinch of contrast as they illuminate the front door.
Inside, the home's interior continues with the white theme. Richly stained hardwood floors ground the design as they flow from kitchen to living room and beyond. Sought-after touches like a roomy pantry, complete with barn-wood door, ensure that everything is organized and in its place. The kitchen is designed around a central island, the ideal location for supper prep, an impromptu cup of coffee or after-school homework. The dining room is airy and bright as a row of large windows floods the area with natural light. It easily accommodates a large farmhouse table with seating for eight.
The custom touches in this newly built farmhouse are sure to keep you coming back to Goldenwood Farm to see its progress and how its design evolves over time.
Once the weather warms up, this long run of porch can house a plethora of patio furniture and decor so the family can enjoy those warm summer nights.
