From the architect. This historic gambrel barn was partially destroyed in a fire. The owners commissioned Specht Harpman to reconstruct the barn's exterior, and to completely redesign the interior for use as a new home.

The exterior incorporates traditional forms and materials in a way that respects the other historic buildings on the 8-acre site, while a radical restructuring of the interior creates a free and open volume that works as a modern, loft-like living space.

Polished concrete floors, exposed maple framing, and custom woodwork are employed to make the home a warm, comfortable, and elegant place for living and entertaining.
