Restored Country Retreat With Barn Home and Cottage

Home Exterior: Country Retreat in Danville, Ohio

Photo by: Zillow Just 60 miles from Columbus, the country retreat comes with three remodeled homes and 25 acres of gorgeously landscaped grounds. The property includes a 2,400-square-foot timber-frame main house, a 500-square-foot guesthouse/studio and a 1,300-square-foot cottage.

This farm in the rolling hills of central Ohio would make the perfect retreat for anyone who wants to enjoy nature — especially if they appreciate the care and effort that brought this property back to life.

Known as Winter Spring Farm, the property is nestled on 26 beautiful acres on a ridge in Amish Country. It was meticulously restored by the owners in a painstaking process that took more than 20 years, with a focus on artistic vision and craftsmanship.

The main house is a 19th-century post-and-beam barn, which was moved to the farm in 1981 and then renovated into a gracious country home. It features chestnut floors, a gourmet country kitchen with fireplace, a first-floor master suite with shower and jetted tub, and a living room/conservatory with woodburner. Upstairs, a large media room opens to the balcony, two bedrooms and huge sky-lit shared bath.

A separate 1,300-square-foot cottage offers two master suites — each with a deck — plus a spacious country kitchen, den with custom built-ins and heated two-car garage.

Located next to the barn house, the studio is a sky-lit room that includes a bath, kitchenette and laundry. Consisting of 400 square feet under a lighted cupola, it offers a space that can accommodate many different uses: a craft studio, writer’s retreat or even a caretaker’s cottage.

The property also includes a two-stall horse barn, chicken coop, meadows, extensive hiking trails, orchards and all mineral rights. And if you ever need a taste of city life, both Columbus and Akron are only about an hour away.
