Enter through a substantial clear leaded glass and wood front door to the Parlor. The large windows done in period-appropriate style are on front and side walls, adding abundant natural light. Beautifully stained hardwood floors and millwork is impressive and immaculate. Rich warm wood work abounds in this home. The focal point fireplace is detailed with a wood and brick mantel surround and a mirror above that adds friendly formality to the space. The expansive windows and natural light combined with modern period fixtures and lighted ceiling fans forms a comfortable and bright space. Beyond the parlor is a beautifully trimmed stair. A large arched antique window illuminates the landing halfway, flooding the space with light.
Visible from the parlor, there are three more very generously scaled rooms, each adorned with a unique focal point fireplace. Keeping with the artisan qualities of the home, each room has a cased opening that has a stained-glass treatment that is unique to the space. Take time to admire the unique vintage light fixtures. Behind these front rooms is a spacious and modern updated kitchen complete with counter stools that you may have seen at the likes of at Highland Park Pharmacy at the breakfast bar. A roomy breakfast room is open through atrium doors and windows to the spacious covered porch off the back of the home. The pantry received a special touch of whimsy with a screen door, outdoor lighting, and framed with repurposed siding from the original home.
The first floor has a large alcove with an elevator to the second level. A high functioning modern residential elevator is housed behind a beautiful solid wood panel door so not to disturb the period feel. Besides the spacious pantry there is under stair access to a generous closet and a roomy powder bath with a linen closet. The first-floor powder bath is very roomy with an enameled leg and integrated counter sink. Perfectly appropriate and beautiful.
Beneath the charming old time feel of this home is the fully functional and efficient modernity that offers the best in state of the art comfort and maintenance. Energy efficient Lennox AC units, central vacuum, thermal sealed windows, and exterior concrete plank siding are just some of the many smart and high functioning upgrades.
Take the stairs or elevator to the second level to find three more large bedrooms and a master suite with beautifully positioned sitting room. This sitting room would make a lovely space for a bridal party dressing room. The windows wrapping the back corner of the home allows for lovely views and the room is soaked in natural light. The wood work around the corner wall of windows gives the impression of a sunroom. The sitting room is also where the elevator lands and a closet in the space houses the laundry area. A wide opening into this space is closed off by a barn door hardware treatment on the panel door. The panel door is another smart and beautiful addition allowing the door to be open and the space accessible from the hallway for use of the elevator.
Off the sitting room from the elevator and directly at the top of the stairs is the large and light master suite. An inset of two stained glass panels adds interest to the hall wall at the top of the front stairs. Inside the master suite these windows give the illusion of an additional window. The master suite has two large closets, built-in shelves and drawers.
All the bedrooms have roomy closets, generous windows, and lighted ceiling fans. There are two very large bathrooms upstairs and the multiple doors are well done for use and hall access. The full bath closest to the master suite has a stand-alone tub and slab panel sided glass door shower. The custom built cabinets were designed by the family who restored the home. The bathroom cabinets are designed to fit beautifully with the homes history and offer functionality. Generous countertops are in a warm richly veined granite. Both showers are solid surface slab walls for easy cleaning.
The drive up evokes a more dignified era where people visited with neighbors over iced tea on the generously wide front and side porch. The steps to the raised porch are all in classic prairie style clean line newel posts and balustrade. Modern upgrade is the continuous sidewalk path that surrounds the home for safe traverse. The walkway also creates the foundation edge definition. Planting beds are lined with stone and planted in well planned evergreen and deciduous shrubbery for year-round interest and texture. A side driveway leads to the 2 car porte-cochere that creates sheltered walkway to the wide covered back porch. Off the home is a stand-alone garage with two oversized parking bays, a huge insulated workshop, and a lawn equipment corral. The garage resembles a barn and like the rest of this property it is loaded with clever and artistic touches that honor the items that are being repurposed. Truly a labor of love this property has been restored to exacting details with timely and effective improvements. This home is a once in a lifetime find!
Rooms are open to each other through generous wide cased openings for wonderful flow and proportioned for lovely balance of spaciousness and ease of living. Weighty and significant trim details of, extra tall baseboards with plinth base detailing, cased transom openings inset with stained glass, are a feast for the eyes.
This history soaked barndominium has many stories to tell. Tax rolls state it was built in 1987, but history from the local area shows the Knight family built the barn in 1924 when it replaced the original barn that burned down. You can still see some charring on some of the reclaimed wood. It turned a new chapter in history when it served as the living quarters of the family who lovingly restored the main home next door. They put just as much love and hard work into this property. Transformed into a historic, yet flexible and cozy living quarters, what will the next chapter of history be? Sellers would much prefer to keep this patch of history together with the main home. Listed Price: $99,000
If you love the repurposed industrial farmhouse look then this is exactly what you’ve been looking for! This property would make a wonderful Artists studio, live-work-space, sustainable garden center, or retreat venue! The living quarters are comfortable and quirky with loads of possibilities in the rest of the massive spaces. If purchased in conjunction with the adjoining property this barn home makes a wonderful caretakers home, commercial kitchen, or as a residence it would make a great multigenerational property.
The lower level side entrance opens to a wide entry hall adorned with a Texas star leaded glass design. Upon entry there is a full bath, and a bedroom. These rooms are comfortably scaled and have been updated for comfort. Design elements of reclaimed shiplap siding, galvanized metal paneling, antique tongue and groove bead board, and repurposed metal pipe abound and make a statement of rustic renaissance.
Continue through the hall to find the kitchen area and great room. The space opens up with the kitchen along one wall and a huge closet built in across the large room. The rest of the space is open with large roll up doors to create indoor meets outdoor on an epic level. A large covered porch runs the length of the back of the barn, and the doors can be open to truly enjoy the outdoor space and wooded lot beyond.
Open tread stairs wrap and corner with industrial wall sconces lighting the way. Arrive at the loft level to see antique barn wood floor boards and galvanized metal wrapped catherdral ceilings. Furring strip pony walls show the materials used to enclose the space and add another element and texture. A balcony door on the side entry and a window on the opposite peak keep the open space light and bright.
Reminiscent of its barn origins, the roof and sides of the home are metal sheeting. This is a dream for easy maintenance! The street facing barn side has a raised bed and this would make a great spot for a focal point water feature.
With almost 2 acres of treed and open land the barn is situated far enough off the street front that there are many suitable uses for the land. The back porch runs the length of the barn structure and has a bench built in, a path to a fire pit is nestled into a grove of mature trees. There is another generous area of open land before the heavily treed wooded area begins.
