Bring Country Charm To The City With Urban Farmhouse Plans

Characterized by large (often wraparound) porches and big kitchens with gathering space nearby, the farmhouse is a classic sight in American country communities. Today, city and suburb dwellers can also enjoy these features with urban farmhouse designs. These homes embrace the characteristics of the farmhouse while offering their owners updated amenities and deign elements that appeal to urban dwellers.

Urban Farmhouse Plans Enjoying Renewed Popularity

The urban farmhouse plan has seen a renaissance in interest from people building their own homes, as city dwellers seek to embrace a bit of the country life. These house plans bring the character and charm of the country to the city and suburbs, featuring:

  • - Large front porches wrapping around the home
  • - Steeply pitched roofs with dormers and gables
  • - Vertical board and batten board
  • - Metal roofs and accents
  • - The overall look of a farmhouse
  • - Large, open interiors
  • - Generous living areas
  • - Covered back porches

With these features, it's no wonder that farmhouse designs are becoming so popular - especially among those living a busy urban life.

Urban Farmhouse Architecture Creates a True Gathering Place

Why are urban farmhouses enjoying a renewed popularity? The architecture and design of urban farmhouse plans naturally create a gathering place for families, making these homes the place where busy families come together to reconnect. They also have intrinsic charm, offering something unique in a cityscape with many similarly styled homes. Curb appeal is high in these properties as well, helping preserve their value.

Consider The Nelson (House Plan W-GOO-1416), as an example. The large, welcoming porch on this house plan invites family to sit back on a rocking chair with a glass of iced tea while catching up with one another. Inside, a foyer opens into a spacious great room, with a formal dining room and kitchen to the side, and a large covered porch. This is the ideal space for family get-togethers. The Maxwell (Home Plan W-GOO-1453) has a similar design, yet puts the bedrooms on a second floor next to a large bonus room, allowing the main floor to be the primary entertaining area.
