Converted barns are always fun to look at to see how owners decide to use all that space (here’s one resembling a resort). This Erdenheim, PA, home was originally a Pennsylvania Dutch Bank barn built around 1900. The current owners chose to renovate and reinvent, along with architect Terence Woods, who has since moved back to Dublin.
In the stone-walled great room is a 30-foot stone fireplace and a loft overlooking the area. Exposed beams and timber framing are distributed here and there throughout the home, as are custom iron railings, and flooring consisting of wide-plank cypress and radiant heating. The original barn doors were kept, as well.
More exposed beams and a cathedral ceiling can be found in the master suite whose bathroom includes a steam shower, double vanity, and clawfoot bathtub against the stone wall. Outside is a secluded backyard with grill and dining area, fireplace, and hot tub. The home is near Chestnut Hill and has easy access to the Regional Rail.
