The Modern Farmhouse's open kitchen and dining room act jointly as the heart of the home. The open stairway brings in a constant stream of sunlight, and provides a reading nook beneath the stairs. The large kitchen island offers ample storage and workspace, and the dining area accommodates guests and even has room for our piano.
