Designed by Tim Egan, the equestrian barn houses up to six horses and features all the latest gadgets and luxuries. There's a heated equine wash room, automatic waterers, mahogany horse stalls and that's just for starters.
To maximize every inch of the 600-square foot garage apartment, designers installed this custom-built folding barn door. It can slide over to enclose the bedroom or fold up to create a open plan flow across the space.
The entrance to this barn-style residence is in a small extension of the main building. It also houses some of the home's more utilitarian rooms like the laundry room and a mudroom. Barn doors slide over the glass ones for an extra wink of personality.
In the laundry room, what was once a utility closet is now a useful pantry. Pull-out drawers and wire baskets add to the pantry's functionality. The original swinging door was replaced with a barn-style sliding one, which takes up less room in the smaller space.
The pattern of the stone on the car barn's exterior closely resembles a building on the Franklin Delano Roosevelt estate. The Springwood estate, located in Hyde Park, N.Y., served as inspiration for this structure. Many mockups were erected and knocked down before finding the perfect blend of four different stones.
