Love a converted barn’s look but not the hassle of converting an actual barn? This modern barn home needs nothing but you. 

Forget those Vitamin D supplements. To get your daily dose, simply stand anywhere within the 2,700-square-foot interior and allow the sun’s rays to wash over you. Repeat as necessary. While you’re standing there, make sure you take in the surrounding trees that decorate this 21.5-acre parcel of land in southern Columbia County.

This home was constructed in 2008 to mirror an old-fashioned post-and-beam barn from the 19th century. Aside from its overall aesthetic, however, there is nothing old-fashioned about this home. All of this lovely breezyness is less than 15 years old, from the living room with vaulted ceilings and cozy fireplace…

…to the open dining room that is front-row to this impressive wall of windows…

…to the thoroughly-gourmet-ified open kitchen with a breakfast bar, glass-paned cabinetry, and stainless steel appliances and counter tops.

Rounding out the first floor are two bedrooms – one of which comes with an en suite bath – and a second full bath.

Head up the stairs to the lofted second and third floors. There, you’ll find another en suite bedroom, an additional full bath, another bedroom, and a fourth-level loft.

Meanwhile, the basement is not so much a basement as it is a fully-finished media/family/game room with shiplap accent wall and recessed lighting. For those keeping score, that’s an impressive five levels of fine living in this home.

If you’re still hankering to convert a barn yourself, go for it with the barn that’s already on the property…

…or, you could spend your time tending your gardens and apple orchards or floating in a rowboat on the property’s private pond. Doing nothing at all is also an option, and you’ll be encircled by the kind of peaceful, agrarian landscapes you can only find in rural Ancram, NY.
