“His homes are like a well-tailored suit.” Those are the words of a homeowner living in a residence designed by Princeton architect Rolf W. Bauhan. In that same interview, we learn Bauhan had a penchant for the Colonial Revival style and many of his projects are “marked by fine craftsmanship, comfort, and attention to detail.”

Well, gee. If that’s the case, then we should count our blessings, as we’ve just spotted a Bauhan renovation in our neck of the woods!

Nestled on a leafy plot in Doylestown, the Barn at Burnt House Hill (wonder what happened there) is a gorgeous barn conversion with a two-story great room with original stone walls, retreat-like master suite on the third floor, and an in-law apartment on the lower level. It’s a mature structure to be sure (200 years old!), but you wouldn’t guess it from looking at the kitchen, newly renovated with white Carrera marble.

Among its details of note include wide-plank flooring, breakfast nook with wood-burning fireplace, and separate workshop, garage, and stone guest house. Specs and photos below.
