Philly area farmhouse built out of reclaimed stone, wood, bricks

Stone on the 7,000-square-foot house came from an early 1800s barn in upstate Pennsylvania. The arches in the porte-cochère and entrance are an homage to the house where Maggie Polisano grew up in Florida.

“The brick in the mudroom is from a demo in South Philly, the Belgian block is from a demo under the Ben Franklin Bridge, the large ceiling beams are from a barn in upstate N.Y., and the supports for the glass shelves behind the bar are bucket hooks from our horse stables.”
