A stone and wood former Glen Mills barn that sits on nearly two acres of space offers four bedrooms, four baths and a whole ton of sunlight.

The 5,800-square-foot-home was built in 1868 and was once part of the Fairview Farm, but has since been converted into a home that’s set back far from the street, in the Chester County countryside. It opens to a top floor living room that boasts an open floor plan, 14-foot ceilings, and a number of details that remind you of its rustic past (note the worn wood ladder, the barn door, and exposed wood beams).

A spiral staircase leads up to a loft playroom, while a large kitchen offers a breakfast bar, soap stone countertops, a double convection oven, and a farmhouse sink.

A staircase in the middle of the living room leads down to the lower levels, which feature more bedrooms, with hardwood ceilings and plenty of light. Downstairs, there’s also a kitchenette, a covered patio, and a first floor that has 2,200 square feet of unfinished space. Outside, there’s a vast courtyard, an open patio, and all that green space.

The home listed this week for $975,000. It’s the first time the place has been on the market since 2004, when it sold for $365,000.
