Located upstate in historic Hyde Park, this 1830s farmhouse recently underwent a full gut renovation by New York architecture firm Fōz Design. The project, called Fallkill Farm, was executed in collaboration with custom-builder Wolcott Builders, a team effort resulting in what is now a light-infused, rustic, modern retreat that preserved as many of the home’s historic elements as possible, while adding modern, purposeful elements to expose views of the 36-acre property, complete with three barns and a pond.

The 2,350-square-foot, two-story home retains its exposed wood ceilings beams and stone hearth, both originally built by the first owner and his children and on view in the living room. The rustic elements are complimented with plush, modern furnishings in muted warm tones.

A second living space is located on the upper floor and is furnished with the same modern appeal. The windows and semi-open floor plan allow for an abundance of natural light.

In the dining room, a long table made of dark wood is paired with cafe chairs finished in a tarnished pewter.

The dining room’s gray color palette is carried over into the kitchen decor. The added detail of clean white tiling gives the space a more industrial feel.

The bedroom and master bath are crisp white with strategically placed wood accents and industrial or antique lighting.
