Imagine pulling down a long sweeping drive towards an elegant farmhouse nestled among Alaska spruce and against the backdrop of mountains. The house is subtle, the design restrained, but the details are striking- how long has this house been here? That is the inspiration for a farmhouse in Alaska that feels crafted, rugged and timeless. The grand gesture is the thoughtfulness in the planning, the way the forms nestle together and how you experience a house like this over a lifetime. The architecture does not intrude, does not attempt to shock, but reveals its rhythm, proportion, scale and character slowly.
The Inlet Farmhouse is a large and gracious home with a historic look, but a relatively open floor plan. Traditional appointments meld with modern living to create a unique house with usable square footage. The exterior of the house is simple, elegant and with a design resolution and detailing that makes sense. Well suited to a larger lot with room for expansion into unfinished space including attics and basement. Spacious porches shelter circulation and exterior living spaces. The perfect home for a lot with a wide expansive view of mountains or water.
The beauty of this house is not just the additional square footage, but the addition of individual spaces that add utility to everyday living for a larger family. Functional spaces are segregated by use, but arranged to allow for a convenient flow between utility, public and private areas. Sitting rooms, a library and breakfast nook create smaller places to escape throughout the course of the day. Special features includes a full mud-room, butler’s pantry, potting and cutting room, sun porch and multiple fireplaces. When entertaining, the house is easily condensed or expanded for intimacy or large gatherings.
Bedrooms are all upstairs with the exception of an optional mother-in-law suite for privacy and easier access. The home also includes a very large optional loft above the garage for kids play area, a bunk-room for grandchildren or just additional storage.
