like a barn


please click on photo to see more details



doesn't this house remind you of a barn? it never used to be red. I think the owners had a vision when they recently put up the new siding on this house. and I have to say, I think it was a great idea to redo this house in red. don't you?

I'm always so enlightened when you show us the many facets of Long Island. Love the "barn house."

Great idea to paint it red - really brings out the architectural details. Where is it?

LadyFi said...

Great idea! It does resemble a barn.

What is it about red as as colour for barns. It does look more like a barn on the high street. Very eye catching.

Its striking, I will give you that but it really doesnt remind me of a barn ... when I was young I dreamt of living in a converted barn .... how I ended up living in a brownstone apartment I will never know ... I kid; I know ...

Hi everyone, thanks for the nice comments.

Hi Wolynski, this house is located on Fulton Street, a major roadway in Farmingdale.

while passing this house on Saturday night we both commented on how they must have sold off their land behind them and on the side (2 hours were built) so that they could refinish this house. It seems out of place if you ask me and now has NO YARD.

Hi Lily, It looks really cool but for some reason my first thought was old school house. It also reminds me of barn.
Regarging the arch that you asked about in my Ben Franklin bridge post, I don't know but it looks like it could be support for an old bridge that got torn down.
What I do know is it has a painted sign that says something like "welcome to Penn's Landing"

Louise said...

You are right. That house NEEDS to be red!

George said...

The red siding certainly makes the house stand out. But I must admit I like it.
