A Farmhouse Favorite In Prairie Trail

This new build in Ankeny’s Prairie Trail features some of the tenets of popular farmhouse style—lots of white, rustic wood accents, shiplap and black window trim. Built by Sage Homes, the six-bedroom home is appointed with special details like window seats, a vaulted ceiling, a private laundry room and a hidden pantry.

Marvin doors in the dining and living room are fully retractable to access the covered porch for optimal outdoor living. The finished basement offers bonus entertaining space with a full bar and a built-in playhouse.

This project was an entry to dsm’s inaugural Home Design Awards, announced March 9. See the winning projects at dsmhomedesignawards.com.
