Add this converted 1870s dairy farm to the roster of enticing modern farmhouse renovations. Located on 3.8 acres an hour outside of Boston in Sterling, Massachusetts, the 5,556-square-foot home has been completely updated while featuring period architectural elements like exposed, rough-hewn beams, and, of course, the vernacular structure of a farm.

An imposing building with soaring ceilings and open spaces, the residence comprises four spacious bedrooms, five bathrooms, and a flowing floorplan that includes a kitchen, dining, and living area on the first floor, with private quarters upstairs. Walls are white and floors polished concrete.

Narrow windows let light in from all sides of the home, while sliding glass doors opening on to covered patio provide additional access to the outdoors, where rolling lawns, gardens, a gazebo, and so much more are also found. Rounding out the property are three garages, and the home includes a basement. Located at 76 Heywood Drive, it’s offered at $925,000.
