As our Award Winning Beach House Retrofit Project, which is located less than a mile away, this 1,752 square-foot timber framed farmhouse will also be a working model of the ultimate green retrofit home. Beside being built in 1812 as opposed to 1932, the main difference between the two projects is that many of the finish materials are already in place. The antique post-and-beam structure itself will be exposed and all the antique hand hewn timber and 16" wide white oak and American chestnut flooring as well.

Since the design, techniques, materials, products and approach used in the project can be applied to other older homes to achieve the same environmentally sound living space, The 1812 Farmhouse Revealed project will stand, not only as an inspiration for homeowners, but for industry professionals as well. For a reduced impact on the environment, the existing building footprint of this home will remain intact. In fact, the actual living area will actually be reduced by approximately 30 square feet due to the removal of the foyer ceiling, to the upstairs vaulted ceilings.

The restored home will feature an open floor plan with a deconstructed kitchen, dining and living area on the main floor, as well as a multi purpose room adorned with reclaimed wood barn doors. A rebuilt field stone fireplace will provide warmth and a central focal design element. The first level will also include a full bar, a laundry room/mudroom and a full &
1/2 baths. French doors will invite the outside in (and vice versa), with Southern views of the completely private 3+ acres and to a spacious patio equipped with a built-in grill and/or fireplace. The upper level features dual master suites, "the hottest new amenity in luxury homes", according to Architectural Digest.

The property, which is also featuring a detached garage and a horse barn, is situated in a historic section of South Salem, a sought-after hamlet of Lewisboro, Westchester County, NY.

The ALL New 1812 Modern Farmhouse, Westchester NY

"Have you ever heard of the 'Well Standard'?
It's about comfort, nourishment, lighting and mindfulness.
It's about focusing on people, not buildings; that the real role of a building is to keep us healthy, happy, safe and comfortable.
Energy is just an input, a variable; the fact that a comfortable building will use a lot less of it is a happy coincidence."
Lloyd Alter, 12.29.15.
