If you’re in love with modern farmhouse style, you’re not alone. The rustic yet precious look has become ubiquitous in America.
But you don’t have to live in a rural environment to relish life in a modern farmhouse. It’s become popular in big cities and with homebuilders from coast to coast.
This style is exemplified by quaint exterior features like gabled roofs and covered porches. Inside, you’ll find neutral color palettes, clean lines, and natural materials. Of course, there’s often shiplap, either inside or out.
We found five affordable examples of modern farmhouses currently on the market across the country. Each one is priced below $500,000—and all have a similar chromatic scheme. Coincidence? We think not. Scroll on down for the latest in fabulous farmhouses.
Outstanding in its field: With the emphasis on “farm,” this five-bedroom, 3,000-square-foot farmhouse sits in the middle of 3.03 acres of prime pastureland.
It boasts a gabled roof and a long, covered front porch with dual porch swings. Inside there are modern features, including a wide-open great room and a kitchen with an island as well as stainless-steel appliances. Out back, there’s a hot tub big enough for six.
It also has the modern-day version of a barn: a detached garage where you can park the vehicles that will take you to the nearby towns of Owensboro, Bowling Green, and Madisonville.
Georgia peach: Surrounded by tall trees, this three-bedroom jewel with 2,760 square feet of living space is available for just $149 per square foot.
Along with being affordable, it has plenty of upscale and cool custom features. Especially eye-catching is a raw-edge wood island in the kitchen, which lends a rustic and refined style.
This two-story is cleverly designed with all the most used rooms—kitchen, laundry, great room, office, mudroom, and primary bedroom—on the main floor. Two en suite bedrooms and a bonus room can be found upstairs. And it has the requisite charming covered front porch to watch the world go by.
A-OK in Oklahoma: This four-bedroom modern farmhouse may seem as if it’s out in the country, but it’s located in a sweet greenbelt neighborhood near Tulsa.
It’s also near miles of walking trails and stocked fishing ponds. It offers amazing sunset views—and the best of both country and city worlds.
In keeping with the country vibes, there’s a covered porch out front and a screened porch out back. Inside, you’ll find Pinterest-perfect decor, white walls, wood floors, and a sleek bar in the open kitchen.
Bonus below: This gorgeous, 1-year-old residence comes with the most coveted of Upper Midwest amenities: a finished basement.
This means in addition to the great room and the three bedrooms on the main floor, there’s bonus space for a game room, media room, gym, or office—whatever your heart desires.
The 2,286-square-foot home is also well-appointed, with white quartz countertops, designer light fixtures, LVT flooring, and quality stainless-steel appliances.
There’s a deck out back and a covered porch with a swing in front. The residence sits on a grassy lot in a nice neighborhood filled with other new homes. Close to schools, it’s a perfect family dwelling.
Old West in the Southeast: Built in 1974 with a ranch vibe, this three-bedroom home was fully transformed to meet the modern farmhouse aesthetic—complete with a sliding barn door.
Rustic wood shutters and trim—inside and out—lend a full farmhouse effect. But it’s the wraparound cedar bar on the back deck that really catches your eye.
It’s located right across the street from a leafy parklike area and a tributary to the St. Johns River. Go a little farther and you’ll find St. Augustine Beach for when you want to trade your farmhouse vibes for coastal ones.
