On March, 10, 2018, our daughter was married in this picturesque barn--full of antiques--surrounded by 15 acres of beautiful pasture, scattered with charming oak trees. The allure of the property is what led us to reserve it for this unforgettable day almost a year before. By the time the wedding day arrived, this stunningly beautiful property was for sale. It was right there in the middle of the reception that my husband and I realized that we wanted this place as our own. Over the next couple of months, we were fortunate and blessed enough to make it happen. Now, we want to share it with you.
