A Reconstructed Connecticut Barn Asks $1.3M



Connecticut Barn on the market

Though colonial houses will always hold a special place in our hearts, it’s hard to imagine a home more classically Connecticut than this converted barn. Originally constructed in 1797, the barn was damaged in a fire and unoccupied until 2014, when it was purchased by a couple that could give Chip and Joanna Gaines a run for their money. Their extensive restoration left the barn’s original heart intact, but infused a necessary helping of modern livability.

Located in the small town of Kent, Connecticut, the barn reborn is now on the market asking $1.295M. Included in the barn’s 4,002-square-foot floor plan are three bedrooms, four bathrooms, and several appropriately rustic features; a silo, soaring ceilings, barn siding, and exposed hand-hewn white oak posts and beams all serve as charming reminders of the structure’s first life. Complimenting these quaint qualities are modern updates ranging from wide-plank oak floor panels to smart home technology.

The home’s designers clearly had a lot of fun with the floor plan, placing the master suite, complete with a large sitting area and walk-in closets, in the restored silo. Below, the main level is wide open, with the kitchen looking over the living and dining rooms, which are serviced by a towering stone fireplace. The barn itself is surrounded by 3.6 acres of sprawling lawn, home to a front porch, stone-lined gunite pool, landscaped pond, pergola, and an orchard.

Ira Goldspiel and Howard Schissler have the listing at 316 Kent Cornwall Road.
