Sure, you can tack a pop-up camper onto the back of an 18th-century barn and call it a day. Or, you can take a big red barn and shove it through the looking glass, which is clearly what happened to this massive funhouse of a barn conversion in rural Pennsylvania. A dramatic fusion of reclaimed materials and contemporary design, this four-bedroom, four and a half-bath dwelling is currently listed for $3,195,000. The main living area boasts Nana walls, sky-high ceilings, a fireplace, and a spiral staircase leading upstairs. The kitchen features a six-burner gas range and contemporary cabinetry, and the floors throughout the abode are either hardwood or poured concrete. There's an elevator in the silo, and a catwalk with a custom bookcase and wall of windows on the second floor, which also houses the master suite —thousands of glass tiles decorate the shower, and Nana doors from the bedroom lead to a balcony with a fire ring. There's a media room on the third floor with a projection TV system, and an entire wing of the house is a guest suite up on the fourth floor. Outside, you'll find 12 acres of land, a patio, a heated pool, a fire pit, and a spa.
