Farm House Plans...
Pastoral Perspectives!

The farm house plans featured here are designed for today's lifestyles, but retain the charm and character of yesteryear.  Clapboard siding and covered porches lend authenticity to the designs.  Interior spaces feature open floor plans and soaring ceilings to meet the demands of 21st century living.

The design below evokes the spirit of historic farmhouses dotting America's Mid-Atlantic region.  Located near Charlottesville, Virginia, "Claymore" blends traditional symmetry with modern simplicity.  Architect David Neumann, of Neumann Lewis Buchanan Architects, infused the design with a timeless quality that is destined to perpetuate the area's rich architectural legacy.

"Claymoor" Facade Perspective

Claymore consists of a central block with extended wings -- all of which are clad with white clapboard siding beneath a red metal roof.  Paired windows flank the front entry, sheltered by a welcoming porch.

Claymore's symmetrical exterior design extends to its 2,500 square foot interior.  At front and center is a large living/dining room with two fireplaces and a soaring cathedral ceiling.

At the back of the room, three sets of French doors lead to a bluestone terrace flanked by screened porches.  A guest room and master bedroom suite occupy opposite ends of this striking single level residence.
