A Thriving Location

Kimberley Estates, located on Ankeny’s NE side, is widely recognized as one of the premier neighborhoods in the metro area. With only 46 lots, this exclusive community provides a level of privacy and seclusion that is hard to find in the heart of a thriving city. Ankeny’s NE side is a rapidly growing area with easy access to the interstate, making commuting to downtown Des Moines or Ames a breeze.

Rustic Materials

The use of rustic materials in our Ankeny home creates a sense of warmth and comfort. Shiplap walls, wooden flooring, and stair railings made of wooden posts and metal rails provide a traditional farmhouse feel. The living room’s focal point is a painted white brick accent wall, adding texture and charm to the space. A shiplap accent wall in the basement, coupled with wooden floating shelves and white cabinets, enhance the home’s rustic aesthetic.

Neutral Color Palette

To achieve a modern farmhouse look, a neutral color palette is ideal. We used white and beige tones throughout the home to create a clean and cohesive look. An excellent example of this is our kitchen, which features white upper cabinets, gorgeous white quartz countertops, and white porcelain subway tile backsplash. A pop of color on the kitchen island helps add to the tranquil atmosphere with its natural, eucalyptus color and board and batten framing detail.

Industrial Touches

Industrial elements add an edgy contrast to the rustic materials and cozy textures. We’ve incorporated black metal light fixtures throughout to help balance the space as well as other more modern elements. An excellent example of this is the basement, which features a stunning built-in entertainment wall with a clean, modern looking fireplace across from the metal stair railings that both perfectly contradict the shiplap accent wall.
