This charming Massachusetts cape cod house was built in 1817 and was originally a farmhouse. While the home looked charming, it could not comfortably accommodate the family of six, their extended family and friends. In order to make the house workable, they increase the number of bedroom considerably and add a barn onto a house. The two-level lofted barn added about 2,665 square feet of living space that blends gracefully with the New England landscape. The results? A beautifully renovated old house that reflects the past but also embraces modern lifestyles simultaneously.
