This eight year renovation is a true masterpiece... the center of the home, of course, is the kitchen and two plus story great room. A barn was purchased and disassembled and then strategically placed to create the most incredible architectural details. The vast custom kitchen that has been featured in several magazines, has cabinetry by "Plain & Fancy" and a custom island by local artisans.
