Scrolling through my Bloglovin feed this morning I came across the above picture (posted by Elements of Style). Hello my dream! A beautiful, renovated farmhouse on a working farm. The Grey Barn, as it is called, is a working diary farmed owned and operated by the Glasgow family on Martha's Vineyard. They sell their organic cheese, raw milk, pork, beef, veal and eggs at the honor box farm stand every day and at a local farmers market on Saturday. Eric and Molly Glasgow did not start out as farmers but rather as an oil trader and a designer. In 2008 while contemplating a move back to the states from London, they decided they wanted to start a new life for themselves as farmers. In 2009, they brought their property on Martha's Vineyard and in 2010 their first cows arrived. 

Hutker Architects were called upon to aid in the design of the property, barns and the family home. The inspiration for the home was "a modern Belgian farmhouse" that Molly insisted have a "structural timber frame - not a fake one" (AD). The timbers came out of a barn in North Carolina with many other materials in the home being salvaged or sourced locally. The overall look is quite traditional but I love the mix of such modern elements as huge, single paned windows.
