White Home with Front Porch

White Home with Front Porch


You know it will be a good day when you come to Home Bunch (or open your mailbox, if you’re a subscriber) and you see a house tour by Timber Trails Development Company and Julie Howard. Here, the designer shares more details on this exceptional new-construction home:

“The inspiration behind our Timber Trails Equestrian Estate was classic and timeless design. So often we are trying to reinvent design and adding a new twist to a classic. With this home, we just stuck with the classics. The dormers out front give that Cape Cod feel to most but to me it was a old horse estate with charm and a Ralph Lauren style. Because this was a spec home, I couldn’t go all in with the deep rich colors and plaids one would expect with equestrian design; I tried to evoke that same feel using lighter colors paired with traditional millwork and lighting. We build so many modern farmhouses but this home felt special and unique for our community.”

Take your time while seeing this house tour… this one deserves your full attention and you deserve this break!

“The alcove off the dining room was actually a necessary bump out is the exterior design of the home. It was an awkward space off the dining room originally designed as a closet.

Get ready to get very inspired by this custom-designed kitchen by Julie Howard! Here, the designer shares some details: “I wanted this kitchen to feel warm and inviting. It is classic in design but with the addition of the window ledge continuing under the cabinet there is a little unexpected. We actually hardwired the lamps on the window ledge so they can be switched on and off and the cords disappear into a hole in the Caesarstone. The opposite side has two china cabinets that can house every day dishes and glasses and everything pretty. Since most people nowadays seem to have white dishes we painted the inside of the cabinets Benjamin Moore Kendall Charcoal so the dishes would pop. This also helped to move the dark grey around the room from the refrigerator on one side to the island in the middle and then the inside of the cabinets on the range wall.” – Julie Howard for Timber Trails Development Company.
