UNIQUE, POTENTIAL, LOCATION, and OPPORTUNITY. Four words that can attempt to illustrate the story of this real estate gem. The partially converted barn is a charming and rustic structure that has undergone some transformation to serve a new purpose while retaining its original agricultural character. The barn, built in the 1800s, has an exterior that maintains the classic features of a traditional barn. The large, imposing doors that once opened to admit wagons and livestock still dominate the front facade, though they may have been converted into functional doors or even windows. The roof, covered in aged shingles or tin, exhibits signs of wear but is still intact. This property has five entry ways, and three living quarters, which could be used independently, or universally, depending on the owners prerogative. The main living area, accessible through the large double doors, boasts a vast entry way which displays the original wooden beams and rafters that crisscross the high ceiling, adding to the room's character. The hardwood floors may bear the marks of decades of use and allow for the vintage rustic vibe which is a coveted aesthetic desire. Large windows have been installed to let in natural light and offer views of the surrounding countryside, while the original stone work of the barn reaches from floor to ceiling. As you make your way into the living room, you will notice the spacious loft area which is used for storage, but can easily be converted into a second story bedroom or living area. The kitchen is equipped with a large commercial sized stainless steel oven and stove, with an island, sink, and plenty of cabinet space. Just off the kitchen is an eating area with a functional wood burning stove and a full bathroom. The sliding glass doors lead out to a newly expanded deck overlooking the secluded backyard. The second living area, which can be accessible from the outside deck, or inside from the front foyer, is a secluded area with a loft bedroom, full updated kitchen, full bathroom, and a cozy living area. Off the living area is a door out to the second story deck that overlooks the beautiful side yard and garden. The lower level, with its outside separate entrance has been beautifully engineered as a separate living quarter. Two large bedrooms, with a full bathroom are down the hallway upon entering the lower living area. Walking down the stone lined hallway you will emerge into the kitchen and living area with a large spacious island. As you walk out the back door onto the covered porch, you are entering a small oasis that has a wooden porch swing and patio that is next to the two level koi fish pond. This tranquil area is the perfect setting for relaxation. As a whole, this property exhibits parts of the barn that may retain their original use, providing ample storage for gardening equipment, firewood, or vintage farm tools. The decor inside the partially converted barn reflects a blend of rustic and modern aesthetics, including antique farm implements, such as plows and harnesses, which hang on the walls as decorative pieces. Set in a picturesque rural landscape, surrounded by fields, meadows, and woodland, this property also is equipped with two storage shed/workshop buildings. A gravel driveway leads up to the barn, and there are gardens with colorful flowers and vegetables, maintaining a connection to the land's agricultural heritage. In summary, a partially converted barn offers a unique and inviting living space that is waiting to be inhabited or reimagined by new owners. With its close proximity to the highly desirable downtown Phoenixville area and top rated local schools, this rustic remote getaway is a once in a lifetime experience, so do not hesitate to book your appointment while the opportunity lasts
