As I was scrolling through homes looking for something special to wow you with last week, I thought it was about time to I had a look at Heath again. And boy, did I find something special! This Heath modern farmhouse is perfect in every way. I’m pretty sure it would even make Martha Stewart’s heart skip a beat!
With each photo, I kept thinking, “It can’t get better.” Yet it did. When I called Marian D’Ungar and Nancy Pieper at Coldwell Banker’s Apex, they told me why, and her name is Carrie Hatfield. She’s the genius behind this fabulous Heath modern farmhouse.
Hatfield is one of those folks that just gets it. She knows what works, is an organizational whiz, and has a strong design instinct. When it came to creating the family home, she pulled out her idea notebooks, pulled on her boots, and grabbed her hard hat. This home is not Hatfield’s first rodeo. Her last design was so successful that people kept asking about it. “We put it on the market just to see what would happen,” Hatfield said. “We had our buyer in 12 minutes.” That must be a new record for sales anywhere in America.
When it sold, Hatfield realized she loved the entire design-build process. “I thought, ‘I need to do this again,’ ” said Hatfield. This Heath modern farmhouse is only Hatfield’s second project, but it’s crystal clear she’s chosen the right career path. She and her husband, Josh, who owns Hatfield Acoustical and Drywall Inc., hired local builder Perry Bowen of Homes by Bowen, and architect John Lively with John Lively and Associates.
Hatfield was completely hands-on, acting as the general contractor as well as designer for her Heath modern farmhouse. The reason this house works so well is that Hatfield is incredibly detail-oriented. She’s also practical. As a mother of two human kids and three fur kids, she knows a house must function for a family. Organization and storage are key operating words for a happy life.
“Everything adult-related is on the first floor and including the game room,” Hatfield said. “All of the kid space is upstairs. They have privacy, their own living space, and their own laundry room. I never have to see their laundry!”
Hatfield even created a special place for her fur kids in the design plan. Under the staircase is the dog bed for Hatfield’s three bulldogs, with two drawers for their toys. The trio also has a dedicated dog run outside.
Every space is well-thought-out. Hatfield equipped the laundry room with a massive walk-in linen closet for blanket and sheets. There is a huge pantry behind the kitchen, storage everywhere, and closets! Let’s talk about those closets!
The last time I saw a two-story closet was at Champs D’Or, and I think this one is even more incredible.
“I have a love for shoes and handbags,” Hatfield said. The whole second story is filled with glass-fronted cabinets to display her collections.
I know, just take a breath.
Then run for your checkbook because this 9,902-square-foot Heath modern farmhouse is on the market! Remember, Hatfield is on a new career path, and she’s ready for the next challenge. Her kids have handed her a laundry list of things for the next house,and she’s off and running, hard hat in hand.
You can get a sneak peek at this Heath modern farmhouse on Friday, December 6th, at the annual Heath Holiday Home Tour. The home sits on over an acre and has six bedrooms, six bathrooms, a powder bath, a game room, a home office, a swimming pool, and an in-ground trampoline. If I were buying it, I’d send all my stuff to Goodwill and beg Hatfield to leave her fabulous décor!
If you’re trying to pick your jaw up off the floor, give Coldwell Banker Apex agents Marian D’Ungar and Nancy Pieper a call. They have listed this Heath modern farmhouse at 846 Providence Way for $3.2 million. Maybe Martha needs a Texas retreat!
