This firm is responsible for building a gorgeous modern farmhouse situated in Santa Rosa Valley. The homeowners wanted their dream house to have a pool, a barn, and a space to raise horses. JRP’s team of architects, interior designers, and drafters, together with the clients, went all in and worked collaboratively to tick off everything on the checklist. They demolished the existing house on the 3 ½ acre lot to give way to the new home and designed it with an open floor plan with natural hues, wood accents, and clean lines. They gave each room its own personality while keeping its farmhouse charm and achieved the couple’s dream home.
