Curbed’s House of the Day column may swoon over midcentury time capsules and historic Victorians, but more contemporary homes catch our eye, too. Take this three-bedroom, three-and-a-half gem in Lexington, Kentucky. Built in 2003 and extensively renovated from 2016-2018, the home was designed by Kentucky-based Pohl Rosa Pohl Architects with landscape design by Richard Weber of Springhouse Gardens.
Inspired by the Arts and Crafts style, the house sits on seven park-like acres overlooking the South Elkhorn Creek. An elaborate patterned drive welcomes visitors, and a bridge over a small moat takes you inside.
The living room features a stone fireplace with limestone hearth beneath soaring ceilings of maple and cherry beams. Six operable clerestory windows let in light, while the bamboo floors lead into an updated kitchen with cherry cabinets and luxury finishes. The light-filled master bedroom includes custom-built maple and cherry cabinets and more windows to take advantage of the forest views.
