Serendipity Farm & Vine


Stilwell, Kansas

This beautiful tasting room and event space we designed and built in Stilwell, Kansas, is based on an Oakridge 48’ Apartment Barn Kit from DC Structures. Originally intended as a horse barn with living quarters, the structure was later sold and transformed into a highly unique tasting room and production/case storage space with an upstairs one-bedroom apartment. The initial floor plan features eight horse stalls — four to the left and four to the right of the structure — divided by a central wash bay and a tack room with a mud room and laundry area. Upstairs, cozy living quarters with an open-concept living, dining, and kitchen area, an office, and a generous primary bedroom with an en-suite bathroom offer a welcome reprieve from the day-to-day.

Though several aspects of the initial design have since changed, the owners decided to leave the former horse stalls intact, creating a unique visual element that also functions as seating inside the tasting room. Our team modified this structure to include a wrap-around shed roof that serves as a covered patio space near the entrance. We also enclosed the side shed roofs, removed the original Nantucket dormers, raised the roof pitch to 5:12, and designed the upstairs deck to include an exterior staircase.
