With stunning craftsmanship, a classic Federal style home has fresh inspiring interior finishes creating a beautiful, new home in Franklin’s pretty boutique neighborhood – Water Leaf.
Federal Home Style – Franklin New Home
Federal style architecture takes its name from the period of time in United States history between 1780 and 1830 for homes built in this style in the newly founded country. Known for simplicity and clean lines on a symmetrical structure, typically the front entry of the home has the most embellishment including small porches and doors with sidelights.
Carbine’s recently completed new home at 5000 Water Leaf Drive has historic detailing in the Federal style house from the charming exterior circular pattress plates (see above) down to the interior ceramic door knobs.
When you step into the home, the interior craftsmanship creates a timeless feel and energy in the home. Carbine is known for beautiful wood detailing.
Wainscoting, or wood paneling, wraps the foyer, staircase and dining room giving the home a classic look. And, kudos to our design partners J & K Design Studio for finding the right balance of historic detailing and fresh interior finishes as seen in their recent styling of this home.
The downstairs powder bathroom continues the wood detailing with batten strips. The J & K Design sketch of the space comes to life once the gorgeous shade of Sherwin Williams “Smokey Blue” is added.
Fresh, Inspiring Interior Finishes
New homes with a historic flair find a balance when fresh interior finishes are used. The kitchen, with interior transoms, has honed Carrara marble mixed with mosaic backsplash from the Robert Stern Collection with pretty brushed gold faucet and drawer pulls.
The open floor plan connects the kitchen to the family room with a soaring ceiling accented with beams. The focal point is the pretty black and aged brass chandelier – a great example of fresh choices for a classic home.
One of the many don’t miss elements of the home is the stunning master bathroom. You may have long-admired antique claw-footed tubs and you’ll adore the modern replica in the master bathroom complete with oil-bronze rubbed feet!
