Lovingly-Reconstructed 1880s Barn on 11.2 Acres, $1.1M

  |  January 16, 2019

Imagine taking apart an entire vintage barn, relocating, and rebuilding it from the ground up…

…because that’s exactly what happened with this Columbia County vintage barn. According to the listing, in 1998, an artist/architect took down this barn one post at a time, even numbering each individual beam, board, and peg, and rebuilt it on 11.21 acres of land.

Not sure if you should be impressed by this feat? Take a peek at the 3,930-square-foot interior and then see how you feel…

And, during the rebuild, the previous owner filled this barn with 1700s Delft tile on one fireplace, the original Adams mantle on the other, 100-year-old brick flooring, and 17th-century paneling.

We don’t know about you, but we simply adore these brick floors…

Throughout the rest of the house, you’ll find plank flooring and, of course, lots and lots of windows…

Includes six bedrooms, four baths, and efficiency upgrades like solar panels, fiber-optic high-speed internet , Smart Home technology security system, and locks and heat controllable from your phone.

Meanwhile, when you’re not wandering around this house, ogling every detail slack-jawed, step outside to luxuriate in your meticulously-landscaped yard with rolling lawns, spring-fed pond, and irrigated gardens. There is literally nothing we don’t love about this vintage barn.
