Jose Garces Goes Country

Photos of his farmhouse

Old and New

One of the home’s quaint vignettes—composed of an antique Singer sewing table with a marble top and a collection of antique bottles and washboards—is topped with a BDDW captain’s mirror.

Rustic Luxury

One of four outdoor lounge areas overlooks the expansive backyard. The teak furniture is from Terrain; the burlap appliqués on the pillows echo burlap trim Kubiak added to all the interior drapery.

En Plein Air

The outdoor kitchen and the breadth of local meat and fish producers have inspired Garces to cook more often. Kitted out with traditional barn lighting, slate counters by L. Mazzola Group, and commercial equipment he’s collected from his restaurants, the space is a seamless blend of warmth and modernism. “We tried to keep it contemporary in the design but a little rustic in the execution,” says Kubiak. “It’s by no means perfect.” The redwood planter boxes and redwood-and-concrete kitchen island were both custom-made by Kirk Loubier of Philly-based Alder Construction, as was the deck’s tongue-in-groove cedar ceiling.
