Coming across this listing was like stumbling into a happy fairy tale. Situated on a half-acre lot, this stone barn is tucked away in Bryn Athyn, a small borough about 40 minutes from Center City. The town was founded in the 19th century by a religious community and was designated a National Historic District in 2008. According to the listing, the barn was built in 1900 and served as a "place to enjoy music," which makes sense given the cathedral ceilings in the great room. Also on the first floor is a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and a small corner kitchen. A sleeping loft overlooks the main living area, and there's a Juliet balcony off one of the three bedrooms. The asking price of this ivy-covered barn on 771 Fetters Mill Rd. is $574,900—a $74,100 price cut from its original asking price.
