The views! Just breathtaking in every direction from sunrise to sun set.
The outdoor fireplace and grill, both great reasons to spend time outside and take in those views.
The extra space of the barn. Great for guests, or for use as a large scale art studio or vintage auto display for a dozen cars.
The helicopter landing - convenient access from New York or Boston!
