Our classic Red Barn houses a spacious, contemporary studio apartment above the Garage (please also see listing # 911915 for our main home across the driveway). The vintage barn studio offers an open living plan with a Queen bed, a fully equipped gourmet kitchen and a cozy seating area with a gas fireplace. Once an artist's studio, it is adorned with beautiful antique wide planks everywhere and offers a vaulted ceiling. The loft space above has a twin bed. Our deliberate and painstaking efforts to reduce, reuse and recycle is reflected in the reclaimed fittings and furnishings all over the studio. The combination of old materials, local artisanship and modern industrial design has resulted in a comfortable and contemporary space that is simply beautiful. Everyone loves it; we welcome you to experience it.
