From the Zillow listing:


Surrounded by open fields, this circa 1855 barn was thoughtfully converted in 1999. Key interior details including hayloft ladders, exposed wood beams, and a central cupola, blend harmoniously with modern upgrades and artistic finishes. Soaring ceilings and abundant windows let in the beauty of every season. Entry to the home begins with bluestone steps leading to an expansive deck with long-range views. Glass doors lead to the great room, large enough to accommodate both living and dining spaces. The eat-in kitchen boasts locally sourced slate countertops, stainless appliances and plenty of prep and storage space. The first-floor primary suite includes a separate dressing room. Upstairs, two additional suites as well as office space offer bucolic views. The attached 2-car garage with parking pad and adjacent exerciser room, as well as a detached 1-car garage with loft storage, ensure plenty of space for guests as well as hobbies. With almost 5 acres of mature landscaping, raised bed gardens, and extensive plantings, the grounds are just as inviting as the house. A bluestone patio with firepit and ½ mile of mowed pathways make the yard both accessible and appealing.
