Somers, New York
Price: $1.875 million
Description: Somers was a farming community way back in the 1870s when this barn was first built. But since then the megalopolis of New York City has folded the town into its massive embrace, triggering the barn's makeover into a residential property.
It comes with two acres of ground and, with views of open countryside, still retains a rural feel. But Metro North offers frequent train service to Grand Central Station just a mere hour or so away.
The converted barn's big interior space offers more than 5,000 square feet of luxury. There are four fireplaces, exposed post-and-beam, handsome wood floors and high ceilings. Modern touches include a gourmet kitchen, imported tiles, skylights and security system.
There are two master suites and hand millwork and stone work throughout. A brick terrace enclosed by a low stone wall makes a great outdoor entertainment space.
