From the Zillow listing:


Rustic yet refined, this modern farmhouse blends old and new to craft a showcase home. Take a deep breath of quiet and peace on the adorable front porch, with distant mountain views on the Western horizon. The large new windows provide an abundance of sunlight throughout and further connect the home to the pastoral landscape. The screened back porch provides a place to tuck muddy boots after tromping through fields as well as a cool spot to enjoy a summer evening. It is on county water, but the hand dug well has been lovingly saved with a charming well house. The kitchen is the heart of a farmhouse, and this one is no exception. Highlights include a beaten copper farm sink, slab countertops with a live edge, a hand-hewn beam that gives a sense of history, soft-close custom cabinets and stainless steel appliances. Also of note, a tile shower in the master bath, 2019 HVAC with wi-fi/Alexa capable thermostat, all new plumbing, all new electrical, and a 2019 survey.
