Built on one of the Ozark hills where the shade of canopy and oak trees create a lovely atmosphere, the Farmstead Residence is a hidden gem surrounded by the natural setting. “We’re trying to fit the home within the natural surroundings of the property,” says Paragon Architecture President Brad Erwin, who was the architect of the house. “We’re not trying to make it visible from the road.”
The two-story home has spaces focused on social gathering and entertainment. The residence has three shaded patios, two entertainment rooms, an in-home theater, a full bar and a beer brewing room. The primary entertaining area welcomes the tree-filtered afternoon light to fill the space.
Inspiration came from the homeowners, how they live their daily lives and their preferences as to how they saw the inside and outside coming together. There is no extra ornamentation, but a very clean line between the use of natural setting and a mixed-material palette. “It’s a very unique space and fits how they imagine living their life there, because it suits them very well,” Erwin says.
