Lovers of traditional, rustic farmhouses, look elsewhere. This five bedroom, four bathroom house outside of Orlando, Florida, is a contemporary take on a red barn.
Designed by its current owner, the 4,000-square-foot house features an open layout and soaring ceilings. It centers around the main floor living spaces, which include a large living room that bleeds into the kitchen and dining room. A lofted upstairs space overlooks the living areas and provides unobstructed views to the trees outside the windows.
The house feels playful throughout with vibrant paint jobs and industrial touches like concrete floors, concrete block walls, dangling mismatched pendant lamps, and a metal built-in bookshelf. The tough materials are balanced by the green nature that peeks in through the windows.
The designers took advantage of the site’s picture-perfect weather and built a covered outdoor patio with vaulted wood ceilings, concrete flooring, and a wood-burning fireplace —not that you’d need it on most days in Florida.
Sitting on five acres zoned for 20 farm animals, 1069 Whistling Winds Point is now listed for $699,900.
