Just about two decades ago, two very ambitious men purchased the barn and the 5 acres of land on which it sat. A forgotten part of a thriving dairy farm from over 200 years before, the barn had stood bare for many years, exposed to the elements of many upstate NY winters. Though the structure needed countless hours of work, its bones' (beautiful hand-hewn beams) and glorious setting at the high point of Hog Mountain above Fleishmanns, deemed it a worthy project. A labor of love ensued, and today the barn stands in all its glory as a restored historic symbol of Delaware County. Italian tile floor, wrought iron gates, stained-glass windows, two wood-burning stoves, and large skylights are just a few of the special touches that were added during the restoration, along with the preservation of the massive hand-hewn wooden beams. A professional kitchen - complete with a Four Star double-oven gas range and a stainless refrigerator - Weekends were spent searching for unusual antiques and odd pieces to accentuate the barn's rustic, yet sophisticated charm. From every angle of the barn's three levels, you're sure to spot unusual treasures like the funky brass chandelier that hangs from the center of its 45' ceiling, the antique wooden toy trains that line one of the beams, and the mud room gallery of finds from the property. And lest we not forget the past, you'll find a large part of the lower level, now used for storage, still contains the original cow stalls where the barn's very first occupants resided.
