If you casually pass by this renovated barn at Maple Hill Farm, you'd be awestruck by the live musical performances that await you inside. The cottage-style structure, stained in a dark walnut complementing the surrounding reclaimed wood railing and verdant terrain, is simple in design but beautiful nonetheless.
This incredible family home was created out of a renovated barn. The entire exterior received new board and batten wood siding and a seamed metal roof. The second floor contains a playroom and kid-tastic bedroom. The house also features a gym.
Round windows add architectural interest to this carriage house's exterior. The windows, which are set in curved walls, have their brick tipped out and pitched down to drain water. A beautiful cupola crowns the structure, adding height to its design.
Landscape lighting and mounted sconces illuminate this party barn's back patio area in the evening light. Black roofing extends from the red barn to create a covered patio section that then expands to an open area with a stone fire pit. Mulched sections are planted with short trees leading into the open yard.
An open yard with small planted trees and shrubs allows this beautiful red party barn to shine in the evening light. Mulched areas create fluid lines from the house perimeter into the yard. Landscape lighting dotted around the property creates a twinkly look.
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.
The barn’s paint scheme is evocative of the materials and plantings selected for the landscape. The distinctive red chaise lounges offer eye-catching contrast against the greenery surrounding the spaces.
The covered patio acts as a transition from interior to exterior and provides a cozy outdoor living space. The orientation of the entertainment barn and pool terrace take advantage of the distant mountain views.
White porch detailing, three window dormers and vertical red batten board siding come together to create a charming barn-style front to this home exterior. A spacious porch area provides the perfect space for relaxing.
The bright white exterior of this home shines against the natural colors of the outdoors. Natural wood barn doors and decorative stars give a classic southern feel to accent the farmhouse style. Rock landscaping through the yard provides texture and shaping for the planted area.
Fireplaces that project out from the wall are ideal for flanking with a bookcase, a cabinet or both, as is done here. Their heights, color and basic framework is kept the same for a consistent look. To draw attention to the fireplace, the overmantel is covered in reclaimed barn wood and exterior lanterns adorn the wall instead of interior sconces.
A metal gable porch roof with exposed beams keeps with the country farmhouse style of the exterior. Red Tolix chairs, a glowing, barn-style pendant light, and pots overflowing with vibrant green plants create an inviting entrance.
Built as a caretaker's cottage on a Connecticut horse farm, this home now serves as a guest cottage, Airbnb rental and a private retreat for the property owner. Rust red exterior paint gives the house a subdued touch of color for an updated take on traditional barn red.
