What is a farmhouse style home?

Originally a term that referred to the rural setting and farm function of the home, the term farmhouse is used widely today to refer to a specific style of home and even the type of decor within a home, though we’ll stick to focusing on the architecture style. Farmhouse style homes are characterized by wide front porches and often a partially wrap-around porch. Due to the prominence of the front porch, farmhouse style homes typically have several columns that can be simple or have additional accents, such as stone, to further accentuate the facade of the home. The farmhouse style also lends itself to gables within the roof, the triangular section of a wall between roof pitches that forms an ‘A’ shape. Many modern farmhouse styles have multiple gables for architectural interest. 

Farmhouse Style Home Plans at Madison Homebuilders

The farmhouse style is a home style that our customers often ask about. With its curbside appeal and outdoor space, it’s not surprising why many love this style. Here at Madison Homebuilders, we can help you get the farmhouse style home you’re looking for in your brand new home. We have a few farmhouse style home plans that provide the farmhouse exterior accents you love with all of the modern interior creature comforts you’ll enjoy.

Mayfield Floor Plan

The Mayfield home floor plan is one of our customer’s top picks for a farmhouse style home. With gables and a partial wrap-around porch, the Mayfield is the epitome of farmhouse curb appeal including a side entry garage. Within the interior of the Mayfield, there is a dining room and an eating area by the kitchen. While building, you can choose to have the eating area separated from the family room with a wall or have it flow as an open concept space. The Mayfield has three bedrooms including the master which are all on the second floor. There is also a flex space upstairs where most of our customers use as a home office, gym, or playroom! Check out the farmhouse style Mayfield home floor plan.

Greenwood Floor Plan

The Greenwood home floor plan is a spacious four bedroom floor plan that is farmhouse-esque in its exterior style with a middle gable and a front porch, though not a wrap-around porch like the Mayfield. With the extra space this four bedroom home provides, the Greenwood home plan offers farmhouse style with enough living space to adjust as your family changes or the needs for your home change. Enjoy the convenient first floor master while the three remaining bedrooms are upstairs. Take a look at the Greenwood floor plan

Hampton Floor Plan

While this next home plan is a cape-cod style rather than a traditional farmhouse, we would be remiss if we didn’t mention the Hampton home floor plan with its large wrap-around porch and three dormers. The extra half story of the Hampton floor plan provides separation for the two bedrooms upstairs that can be used for kids rooms, an office, or extra space for whatever your home dreams entail. The master bedroom is downstairs with a walk-in-closet and double vanity sink.
