See the elegant original details in this 1905 farmhouse – the dining room is the crown jewel

In the summer of 2016, a long-held dream finally became a reality for the Riley family as they embarked on a new adventure, purchasing land and a historic farmhouse in Tennessee. Located just outside Knoxville, this 1905 home is brimming with character and charm. Its welcoming design and lofty front porch make it the ideal place to host dinner parties and gatherings of every kind. Not surprisingly, this is exactly what its new homeowners had in mind. Their vision for the home was to create a gathering place full of laughter and love — proof that anything good in life is meant to be shared.
Tucked away at the end of a long driveway and amid a veritable forest, this early 1900s farmhouse is truly awe-inspiring. Its two-story design features a pair of porches accented by stately white columns. With not one, but two outdoor spaces to choose from, guests are bound to find themselves drawn to the comforting shade and gorgeous wooded landscaping.
The interior of the home features a number of original features. Thick trim work, hardwood floors, multiple fireplaces and a wooden staircase anchor the home in its original era. Modern rustic furniture and cool gray colors add a contemporary touch and coordinate beautifully with the existing architecture. This Tennessee farmhouse is undoubtedly worthy of a spread in Country Living.
With stained wood treads and white risers, the home's original staircase is beautiful in its simplicity.
A set of windows in the sitting room allows natural light to easily fill this welcoming space.
The dining room features an impressive gray-stained farmhouse table accented by upholstered chairs and a natural fiber rug.
