The last sentence of this Urbana home’s description on Zillow.com says it all: “IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR UNIQUE, THIS ONE COULD BE YOURS.”
Unique is an understatement.
The 3-bedroom, 1 bathroom home — a converted barn located in northeast Urbana — looks like something out of a scene from a Harry Potter novel (more on that later). View the entire listing and 40+ photos at realtor.com.
Its charm includes a soaring barn ceiling and a gorgeous stone fireplace in the master bedroom. Even the garage mimics the barn look.
Listed at $249,000, the home has 2,100+ square feet of very unique living space. The second two bedrooms are upstairs in the loft area.
The home features indoor and outdoor living, including a very large yard, a beautiful garden, an oversized deck, and an in-ground pool.
Apparently, barn-style homes are very popular and have a long history in the Midwest, which reflects a desire for simpler times and laid-back country living. We imagine the house to be something like the Burrow, the home of the Weasley family — Harry Potter’s best friend’s family
