Converted Barn With Contemporary Flair

We admit, we weren't initially sold on the idea of living in a barn -- until we looked inside this former dairy barn in Cincinnati, that is.

Location: Cincinnati, Ohio

Price: $995,000

The current owners of this one-of-a-kind home completely overhauled the structure while keeping its best features intact: wooden beams, soaring ceilings and an open design. The result? A spacious, contemporary residence with just the right amount of rustic appeal.

Our favorite space in this 3,300-square-foot home is the large living and dining area, outfitted with a hammock (how cool is that?) and lined with windows highlighting expansive views of the Ohio River and Kentucky Hills. Best of all, this bucolic abode is located just 20 minutes from downtown Cincinnati, so you don't have to sacrifice the convenience the city for the charm of the country.
