    Default Modern Reinterpretation of a Historical Rural House in Pennsylvania

    A Modern Reinterpretation of a Historical Rural House in Pennsylvania

    MSR Design completed the renovation of Private Estate (several properties with strong rustic elements). Located in the rural lands of Pennsylvania, the main residence which dates back to the 19th century, has “suffered” some transformations, becoming more modern and comfortable. The authentic feel was kept, for this was the client’s wish. The idea was to bring more of the outdoor inside the house and to open up the interior to the exterior spaces.

    It might be a little too open. Do people actually live there? The kitchen looks like a cheese making space. The rustic elements are gorgeous but where is the heating? Forced heat is going to send all the warm air into the rafters making the floors so cold. So radiant heat under the wood and stone floors? Strange.

    I'd like to know how people actually live there. It's very nice.

    Great use of space, although the living areas are furnished a bit sparse (no, really damn sparse) for my tastes. I love the stonework though.

    That bathroom with the plants in it is lovely! Ditto with the green house. The outdoor spaces were quite beautiful. Get some decorations or more furniture though, it's way too sparse looking in there.

    It's lovely, but a bit OCD in its set-up. I certainly wouldn't object to living there, but some parts seem a bit too exposed to me (where is the natural light in the bathroom coming from; doesn't look like it's coming from a skylight nor from a small window).

    I'd have to have a lot more rugs on that freezing stone and more furniture as well, but it's gorgeous.
