simplified sanctuary Two empty nesters built a comfortably modern farmhouse perfect for their laid-back lifestyle.
After the last of their three children flew the coop, Kathleen and Jack Davis decided it was time to scale back and build the cozy forever home they dreamed of. The pair found an empty lot in Kirkwood three blocks from the lively downtown scene and immediately started envisioning a beautiful bungalow and weekly trips to the Farmer’s Market. When the Davis duo
met the owner of the lot, Monte Herring of Herring Design and Development, their dream quickly changed from a bungalow to a modern farmhouse. Why the sudden change of heart? “Monte had such a strong vision for the home he wanted to build on this property and we just fell in love with his concept of a farmhouse with a modern twist,” explains Kathleen.
