In Encino, a modern farmhouse has indoor-outdoor amenities and style

Tucked against a hillside in Encino, this modern farmhouse makes the most of indoor-outdoor entertaining with such amenities as a wet bar with beer and coffee taps and an exterior kitchen.

But it’s the smaller features that draw the eye. Artful gray and white tile and subdued hues break the home’s rustic aesthetic and add visual interest. An outdoor fireplace lined with the same decorative tile furthers the marriage of styles in the backyard.
