Set back on nine acres of farmland, this Pottstown home rivals many of the rustic farmhouses in New England—but with some contemporary flair.
The five-bed, four-bath home offers 4,500 square feet of space and an accompanying barn, and just listed for $1,139,000. It was built in 1800 but recent renovations have brought it up to speed with many of the nice, more high-end houses that dot the suburbs around Philly.
On the first floor, a large living room has a stone wall and vaulted ceiling with exposed wood beams. The theme of the living room—a mix of contemporary and rustic—carries through into the kitchen and dining room, which both feature the same cool stone walls. The chef’s kitchen has granite countertops and a double oven.
The rest of the home features similar design elements as the first story; pine hardwood floors from Vermont that run throughout the place, and sleek, contemporary light fixtures can be found in nearly every major room. A master bedroom on the second floor has a Juliet balcony and a walk-in closet, while a master bath features a soaking tub and a double vanity.
The adjacent barn is just another cool feature to the home. It’s entirely empty (and can be used for everything from craft brewing to a wedding venue) and has 40-foot high ceilings.
