I’m so excited about today’s post because I get to share one of my favorite builders with you; Millhaven Homes based in Utah. I recently went out to Utah to tour the 2018 Utah Valley Parade of Homes and I was most looking forward to see to the Millhaven parade homes (they had two this year). I also had the opportunity to visit with the Millhaven team, photograph the home and today I’m sharing the Millhaven modern farmhouse home tour with you!
I have followed Millhaven Homes’ projects for many years and I have always been inspired by their incredible detail work inside and out of the homes that they design and build. I think what Millhaven is doing is so fresh, creative and unlike any home building trends that I have seen throughout the rest of the country. It was an absolute joy for me to finally see their homes in person. They had two homes in the parade and today I am showing you their custom modern farmhouse.
The design work in this home was done by Four Chairs.
When I drove up the Millhaven home, I pretty much gasped because it’s not only beautiful, there were so many little exterior details that I noticed instantly and loved. Millhaven was one of the first builders that I noticed a couple years ago that incorporated natural wood exterior accents on their modern farmhouse exteriors.
On this home, I loved the natural wood on the awnings over the windows. Also notice the mix of stone against the white.
I also love the beautiful black windows mixed with the white and of course, the front door is natural wood. Such a stunning combination.
The garages off to the side are the perfect compliment to the home and the main garage opens in the front and back for driving through. It’s great for a boat on a trailer so they can just drive through and not have to try and back out the trailer. So smart!!
From the moment I walked in this home, I saw all the little details that Millhaven is known for. Notice the beams and shiplap design on the entryway ceiling. All the main white spaces throughout the home are painted in Silent White by BEHR.
The main area of the home is open to the kitchen, living room and dining area. I love the changes in ceiling height of all three spaces and again, it’s these little details that make such a big difference.
The living room is large and open and perfect for entertaining or just lounging. Notice the natural wood beams on the ceiling.
I really loved the color they used for the living room built-ins, which is Benjamin Moore Trout Gray. Millhaven does most of their cabinetry in-house and just look at the beautiful details.
One of the first things I noticed when I walked into this home was the window layout, which were unlike anything I had seen before. Clearly the goal was to make sure there was plenty of natural light for the great room and I love the way they designed it! Also notice the millwork below the windows! So good! 🙂
Of course, the kitchen in this home is off the charts amazing! BJ with Millhaven told me that they wanted everything to be enclosed in the kitchen area (including the fridge) and because this area is so open, I thought this was so smart and it looked beautiful!
I also really liked the mix of white uppers and natural wood lowers on the sink side of the kitchen. The arm lights are the perfect touch as well!
The kitchen countertops are quartz, which was the perfect choice in this space! Isn’t it just stunning mixed with the natural wood tones in the cabinetry? Also, if you want to really comprehend just how detailed Millhaven is, just look at the base of the kitchen cabinets (where they meet the floor). The cabinets are like a beautiful piece of furniture!
By the way, the floors throughout the home are engineered hardwoods by Villa Blanca in the Pamplona design. Really gorgeous!!
Off the kitchen is a huge pantry and mudroom area.
I loved the mudroom enclosed storage lockers! Such a smart storage idea for the kids! Also, I LOVED the black slate tile in this space. I saw a lot of black slate tile during this year’s parade of homes!
I had so many favorite spaces in this home (too many to share) but the master bedroom is for sure at the top of my list! Absolutely beautiful design work!
I immediately noticed the white painted brick accent wall when I walked into the space. This is another gorgeous touch to add texture but keep it light!
While there were several other bedrooms in this home, I wanted you guys to see this bedroom that is so amazing with the wood accent wall treatment. I love the change in direction on the left side. So cool!
This home has an adorable kids bunk room with two sets of bunk beds. This layout is a dream space for kids!
This is a two-story home and one of the prettiest areas in the home is the stairway. The shiplap accent wall painted with Benjamin Moore Trout Gray is stunning! I love this trend of using dark rich colors on shiplap accent walls because it makes such a beautiful statement, especially surrounded by light and bright white walls.
By the way, you probably have already noticed but the lighting in this home just blew me away! In classic Millhaven style, the lighting was gorgeous but very functional! My favorite combination!
I mentioned before that what has inspired me the most that Millhaven Homes is known for are the little details. So often, builders don’t really get creative when it comes to the basics like millwork, trim work and molding but this is where Millhaven really shines.
At the base of the stairway, the large office was to the left with a beautiful modern sliding barn door.
I really liked the wallpaper in the office and all the beautiful custom built-ins. Just awesome!
The backyard, pool and pool house is incredible and that mountain view! I mean…. Can you even believe that view?!
Of course, the pool house is amazing and so beautifully laid out and styled!
By the way, the floors in the pool house are wide-plank vinyl!!! Yes! Vinyl that looks like white French oak!
Last but not least, I wanted to show you more of the 3-car garage design that is incredible!
BJ from Millhaven told me that they designed the garage to be a pull through in the middle. In other words, the front and back garage doors open and you can pull through without having to back out. This is great for storing a boat on a trailer! What a smart idea!
I can’t tell you how just how much I enjoyed finally getting to see a Millhaven home in person and talk with the team.
