When the owners took an 1891 barn and converted it into this seven-room custom farmhouse, they incorporated some original features -- including exposed wood -- into the design. Stripped and refinished, the boards can be found on walls with wainscoting, as well as in the coffered ceiling in the great room. Quality finishes, such as raised panel oak doors, arched entranceways, detailed moldings, cherrywood floors with walnut inlays and an oversized wood-burning fireplace, also are part of the motif.

The kitchen, which has a vaulted ceiling, offers a radiant-heat floor and high-end appliances, including Jenn-Air and a six-burner Viking cooktop. The house, which was converted in 2000, has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. It's clad in cedar shingles and has copper gutters, a deck and a detached, two-car garage. It is set on three-quarters of an acre.
