The converted barn home is a Bucks County staple. Whether used as a party palace or a personal retreat, the barn home offers its owner original style and loads of character.

But few barn homes offer as much as this one does. Indoors and out, you will find lots of one-of-a-kind features here.

Main living area from foyer

Of course, it has a huge open main living area, combining a living room with fireplace, dining and breakfast areas, and a restaurant-style kitchen.

Great room

You get loft spaces for working and lounging and private spaces for you and your family.

Dining room

Kitchen

And you also get two things you won’t find in any other barn home we know of. A motorized swing chair lifts you up into the cupola of the soaring main space and lets you take in the entirety of your 82-acre spread from its windows.

Aviary

And you get a one-of-a-kind outdoor dining space, contained in an apiary raised off the ground, overlooking the large in-ground pool.

There’s also an ancillary wing attached to the barn that can serve as an apartment or in-law suite.

Farmhouse

Then there’s the handsome 1825 stone farmhouse next to all this. The original home on this site has been kept up to date and now functions as guest quarters. Beyond the farmhouse is a tennis court.

You’ll also find a raised-bed vegetable garden and some cute log cabins on the property, not to mention a stream that flows through it.

Third house

And if all this isn’t enough for you, you can also acquire the 12-acre lot next to this one. It contains a handsome midcentury modern home that you could also use for guests or rent out.

Between the two lots, you’d have 94 acres of space around you. That makes this place perfect for someone who truly wants to get away from it all yet have it all at the same time. But should you feel the need to experience something more urbane, Doylestown is about a 20-minute drive to your south and Easton and the Lehigh Valley a similar distance to your north.
