There's a Barn Hiding Behind This Staid Stone Facade

Have a nomination for a jaw-dropping listing that would make a mighty fine House of the Day? Get thee to the tipline and send us your suggestions. We'd love to see what you've got.

Location: Greenwich, Conn.
Price: $6,695,000
The Skinny: The buttoned-up bedroom community of Greenwich, Conn. practically demands formal architecture, so when a couple decided they wanted nothing more than to live in a rustic wooden barn, they decided to conceal the lofty space behind a traditional stone facade. Completed in 1968, this odd mashup looks decidedly older on the inside, with wood salvaged from a 19th-century barn and towering stone fireplaces. The barn isn't the coziest space though, so two-story wings provide more human-scaled rooms, along with five bedrooms and seven baths. The updated, eat-in kitchen has a large island and commercial range, while the backyard includes a swimming pool, a greenhouse, and a two-car garage. The house and its two-acre lot are listed for $6.695M, down from the $7.2M the property was asking when it was first listed back in May 2009.
