Loft laden and timber adorned is how this Hopewell, New Jersey residence, originally a hay barn dating back to the 1700s, comes at us today. It’s an artful home, what with its conversion having kept beautiful elements of its rich agricultural past, which includes a stint as a dairy farm prior to making the switch, according to a property spokesperson.

Situated on a nearly 10-acre expanse, the property encompasses pastures, woods, a natural pond, and most notably, gardens recently accepted into the Smithsonian Archives of American Gardens. (Sorry, guys! You’ll have to click on the listing to see shots of those.) Inside, the home’s stone and timber-exposed Great Room claims almost thirty feet to the peaked roof. The surrounding lofts here were built using beams from either side of the room.

Kitchen-wise, the space is covered in warm, neutral palettes and offers honey-colored cabinetry and wood-toned granite. Built-ins and a custom banquette, meanwhile, steal the show in the dining room, which also boasts a fireplace and office. Not to be outdone, the master suite has a dressing room and balcony overlooking the pond (FYI, there’s also an inground pool). It’s also on the same floor as the reading loft and library.
