This Modern Farmhouse built in 2011 and designed by architect/owner Eddie Maestri, AIA, is a traditional archetype contrasted with a modern interior, clean lines, and strong attention to detail. The design was inspired by the architect’s great grandparents’ house in the New Orleans Garden District and evolved with inspiration from Texas/Midwestern farmhouses, as well as the historic four-squares of Old East Dallas.

Ample windows maximize natural light throughout, while porches and patios create the feeling of outdoor rooms. An old-fashioned, second-floor, screened-in sleeping porch is accessible from both the spacious master suite and nursery. The home features an open concept kitchen/family room and is accented throughout by midcentury furnishings. The traditional details of arches and transoms give an elegant juxtaposition against the modern elements of the concrete floors and two-way fireplace.

Antique architectural items, such as doors and shutters from New Orleans, were incorporated into the interior to remind the architect of his hometown, as well as to give the house an eclectic feel. Vintage, reclaimed items and lighting from architectural salvage and local renovation projects were incorporated into the design to give the house a sense of history.
