Barn at Isaac Farm
  Barn at Isaac Farm
Barn at Isaac Farm

The owners of this farm came from Brooklyn, New York fifty years ago. They LOVE living here in very rural Haycock Pennsylvania, and that love is reflected in EVERYTHING on the property.
The couple has meticulously maintained all of the original farm buildings--barn, potting and storage sheds, smoke houses, pergola, and their beautiful rustic home.
The gardens are extraordinary.
The barn is a large bank barn with recessed forebay; the main barn structure is stone. One of the hay mows has been converted to an artist's studio. The barn dates back to 1805.

If you can't have a red barn, then a red door will have to suffice! A wonderful old barn, and you have capture the stone textures to perfection!

What a gorgeous old barn, Michelle! And what a classic presentation of it - hope you can share it with them! You can certainly tell how lovingly preserved it is!
