Property with Crazy Quilt Past Seeks an Imaginative Buyer
501 Route 57 -- Mansfield, New Jersey
You wouldn’t believe the things I’ve transformed into. I’ve sheltered families as a residence. I’ve posed as a retail shop. I even ran a stint as a loft studio. And those are just the uses that have been recorded.
At heart, though, I’ve always been faithful to my original architectural design as a stone barn from the 1760s. But my three levels, open floor plan, and spacious rooms (complemented by two kitchen spaces and two full bathrooms) tend to make potential owners’ imaginations run wild with all the versatile possibilities that my flexible space offers. So, the question is ... what do you want me to be?
