The owners of Stonebridge Farm wanted a home that looked as though it had been around for 200 years, without having to live in the past. The 62 acre site had several existing outbuildings that dictated a scale grand enough to fit the setting. Located on the site of a previous farm house, the new home recalls the antebellum architecture of Middle Tennessee with deep 2 story porches on front and back that protect the interior spaces from the harsh summer sun, and provide a place to take in the spectacular views of the surrounding hills.
Inside the house, each room has its own character to fit its purpose. The Game Room has a rugged Southwest feel to display several pieces of Native American artwork. The Kitchen incorporates old pine beams for a Country French feel that opens to a Breakfast Room and Family Room with material changes to keep each space intimate. The foyer has a traditional curved, floating stair that conceals the view through the house and saves it for living areas that open to the rear garden. The traditional Living Room has been omitted in favor of an Office and Library connected by a hidden bar, with the entire suited decked out in walnut hand crafted by artisan in Arkansas specially for Stone Bridge Farm.
While Stonebridge Farms may have lots of show, it maintains the warm hospitable personality of its owners and places function high on the priority list.
