Project Description

On 2.25 acres in the pastoral landscape of Milton, Georgia, the Yonson Residence is a true modern farmhouse – blending essential farmhouse style with a modern vision for a unique result that is a natural evolution of the setting’s horse farm heritage.

The 4,652-square-foot residence sits 250 feet from the road on a shared gravel drive surrounded by traditional four-rail fencing. Mixed exterior materials give the house definition and depth, lending the established feel of a structure built over time. Vertical cedar evokes a barn character on the garage, an important view from the main approach.

Wide porches and a u-shaped plan facilitate indoor/outdoor connections in spectacular style. A central courtyard opens freely into the home via a glass garage door which opens the kitchen’s rear wall to the porch beyond. The interior is an eclectic yet intentional marriage of farmhouse, in reclaimed beams and white shiplap, with modern industrial, in concrete plaster and metal, for a compelling modern interpretation of farmhouse life.
