NORTH CENTRAL FARMHOUSE
Location: Phoenix, AZ
Designed as a craftsman style farm house on the exterior, this 8,500 square foot home conceals a contemporary shaker style interior. The new house was woven around mature trees that were present on the fifty year old site giving the house a feeling of having existed for decades. The porte cochere conceals an auto court for the 6 car garage. Interior features include a hidden office accessed behind disappearing book shelves, a guest bed which rolls out of the wall, and light cupolas that bring indirect light to the central hallway. The house was featured on Phoenix Home and Garden’s Palette of Homes tour and has been widely published. It is the first example of a mixed media roof used here in Phoenix by incorporating a metal standing seam roofing on the low sloped patio areas to help rid the shake roof of fallen leaves. This roofing style is widely popular now in the Arcadia and Central Phoenix area. Exterior brick and siding treatments were inspired by the older homes that dot the beautiful North Central Neighborhood.
