The Farmhouse: New Inspiration for the Classic American Home
Farmhouses evoke nostalgic memories--real or imagined--of a simpler life and a deep, nourishing connection to the seasons and the land. While most of us don't live that way anymore, we all share a longing for the values that this classic American house form represents.

From a working farm on Martha's Vineyard to a horse ranch in Washington State, this remarkable collection of 20 new and remodeled farmhouses celebrates the best American farmhouses built in the past five years. Over 300 photographs beautifully illustrate these homes, and the accompanying site and floor plans, historical sidebars, and up-close details add depth to this rich collection.

At the historic Donaldson farmhouse, Dunwoody, Georgia, USA
DeKalb County spent $1.2 million under its green space program to buy the Donaldson House -- named for the original owner, of the late 1800s -- and its 3 acres on Chamblee Dunwoody Road. County officials plan to preserve the house, though what use it will be put to they're still not sure. The grounds, with magnolia trees and lots of roses, will become a county public space. Jim Donaldson, the house's original owner, was attached to his land. The property includes a century-old farmhouse and a backyard cemetery where Donaldson, who died in 1900, is buried. Married three times, he had fourteen children. Some descendants still live in the Dunwoody area. The house was built around 1870. Donaldson, an emigre from Great Britain, came to Georgia in the mid-1800s at age 12. After brief service in the Civil War, Donaldson farmed and amassed land. He sold 1,000 acres -- at $6 an acre -- and helped bring more settlers into what is now north DeKalb County. (from the Atlanta Journal & Constitution - February 2006)
