A 1920s converted dairy barn farmhouse in the Hudson Valley

Up there with my love of converted churches is my love of converted barns. I might even love barns more because of the rustic, casual nature of their structures. “The Grateful Farm” in the Hudson Valley was built in the 1920s and purchased days before the pandemic as a weekend retreat but it sounds like the owners moved in and never left. How could you leave this picturesque scene and all that open space?! Lori Paranjape created an ideal hangout/sleepover/casual home that I know I could never leave, and you probably have to drag your guests out kicking and screaming. Photos: Andy Ryan
