If you love barns and nice homes, I found a combination in Ursa, Illinois that I think will impress you. It's a stellar "barndominium" home that combines the best of both worlds.

My wife sent this home to me as our family is in the market right now looking for a place. This is 102 Junction Street in Ursa, Illinois that she found on Realtor.com. If you're not familiar with what a "barndominium" is, Extra Space defines it as a home that has the shape of a barn, but is a residential home. By the way, that's my description and not the realtor or owner. Here's how the listing describes it:

Stunning 4 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath Home. This home will call you in as you enter the front door - beautiful, warm wall colors, new flooring and bright windows throughout. The kitchen conveys a fresh, farm house feel with new cabinetry and solid surface counters. A main floor Master Suite with a private bath that shines in glass, tile and dual rainfall shower heads. 3 large bedrooms, full bath and a bonus room round out the upper level. Enjoy new stainless steel appliances, main floor laundry, new roof, new heating/air and a water softener, 2 car attached garage. This home will Wow you and it is only minutes from Quincy.

I love this place. See if you agree.

Asking price as of this writing is $229,900 according to Realtor.com. If my family was ready, we'd jump at this place. It's not far from Quincy and is super-modern on the inside. The fact that it reminds me of a barn is a big bonus in my mind.
