The homestead at Meadow Rock Farm was built in 1995 and served as the residence for the Walls family until 2007. It then became an organic farm until 2011, and is now available as a vacation rental.
It is a custom timber frame and made of white, red and pin oak beams which were harvested in the Mid-Atlantic area. Since the house is a true timber frame, all of the beams are created with only wood joinery and secured with hardwood pegs. The beams are a highlight in the house, creating large open spaces.
The house features a great room and dining area with a fireplace made with Maryland flagstone on the first floor.
Much of the wood in the house came from the trees on the property: wild cherry kitchen cabinets, maple and ash doors, and oak trim. The kitchen includes a commercial range and a walnut bar top that is 2 inches thick and had been in storage since the depression. The fireplace in the master bedroom is made of pink marble from the Koch estate (formerly the Phillips estate) in downtown Butler.
The house is filled with country antiques and family heirlooms. It has 6 bedrooms, a third floor loft, and a commercially inspected basement area. The cedar exterior of the house compliments the woodland setting. There are extensive gardens which include roses, perennials, and a kitchen herb garden.
