A distinctive architectural vision turned this sprawling apple barn into the splendid home it is today. In Hopewell, just outside Pennington, in a pastoral setting surrounded by picturesque homes, the original character of the barn was retained when it was converted to a residence in the mid 1980's. Designed by architect William Lariche, a Princeton graduate, the home is loaded with modern amenities. Enter via a large courtyard that provides plenty of parking behind manicured privacy hedges and know you've stumbled upon something special. Painted floors lead the way to large entertaining rooms that open to the outside. An urbane kitchen sits between the dining and living rooms and offers a Wolf range, Jenn-Air ovens, a Miele dishwasher and refrigerator. A full bathroom, bedroom and den are across the hall. Stairs hidden within a silo climb to beautiful bedroom quarters upstairs with an airy, lofty feel. Two bedrooms share a bathroom, while the master is a delightful suite of three rooms including a study.
