Do you love a great porch house?
Well this is the porch house to end all porch houses. Designed by my favorite Nashville architect, David Baird, and commissioned by some horse loving clients in Bon Aqua, Tennessee, this beautiful house in the country embraces the land it sits on.
The clients have lived on the land for several years, and they show horses. They wanted to be able to view the horses up on the hill from the back side of the house, and enjoy the view of the low pasture from the front.
And of course, wouldn’t it be nice to just walk all the way around the house on the porch, any time you like?
And let’s not forget the screened in porch complete with fans, just off of the master bedroom, which makes this the ultimate porch house – good for enjoying the outdoors in the hot summer months.
But what’s really great about this porch house is the way the views of the land extend all the way through the house. The great room is one big room in the middle, with porch on both sides.
Lots of doors and operable windows let the fresh air in for natural ventilation.
At the end of the living room is a glassed in sun room, for a winterized version of the screened in porch on the other side.
And of course, there is a special spot for our clients to watch their horses up the hill: The breakfast room – a great stretch of windows above this window seat, where the clients can sit for a morning cup of joe.
If you like outdoor living, you’ll love this porch house. Best of luck to our Bon Aqua clients in their new home construction
