Love the water? Take a look at this converted barn in Flourtown, Pennsylvania, a short drive from Philly’s city limits. Not only does it come with an in-ground pool and hot tub, but it’s located right along the Wissahickon Creek.
The home was originally a barn that was later converted into the five-bedroom, four-and-one-half bath house it is today. There’s also a lovely carriage house on the 1.75-acre property that’s a delight in and of itself—perhaps a future guesthouse?
There’s a lot to look at within the converted barn. The main living area has sky-high ceilings, accentuated by equally tall windows. The master suite on the second floor is pretty spacious, too, with two walk-in closets and a private balcony that looks out over the pool.
But perhaps the best vantage point of the home can be found off the second deck, which looks directly out to the Wissahickon Creek and Fort Washington State Park.
The asking price of the home is $1,295,000.
