Westchester Magazine, Cozy Up to This 1812 Farmhouse Reimagined as a Stylish Smart Home

03.21.19. Westchester Magazine, by Bill Cary

Kitchen love! I was pursuing Houzz this early morning and came across this stunning ‘modern@farmhouse’ located in the historic hamlet of South Salem, NY) by @westchesterrealhomes. It’s worth your time and the house is now for sale - @90springstreet. In each house I incorporate a piece of furniture in the kitchen but one of these days will create a kitchen that is nothing but furniture and fabulous shelving (no official cabinets). The detail in this kitchen is worth the study - varying wood color use, the also varied shiplap width... #westchesterrealhomes#bellarusticadesign #bellarusticastyle#bellarustica #modernfarmhouse#90springstreet

The consensus of ACARC was that the proposed exterior renovations to the farmhouse are a welcome upgrade and an asset to the neighborhood. The Council deemed the proposed plan to be in keeping with the visual character of the surrounding area and appropriate in size. ACARC found the design to be simple and classic and concluded that the quality exterior materials will greatly improve this residence's appearance.
