Year-Round Getaway

Though all new, the open-air great room is entirely in keeping with the simple aesthetic of the original farmhouse—from the kitchen's antique pine floors and flat-panel cabinetry to the porch's beadboard ceiling.

The porch functions as the family room year-round. Screen panels are changed out for glass versions in cold weather. The new Rumford firebox is an 18th-century design that maximizes the amount of radiant heat put into the room; it is topped with an antique beam for a mantel.
