A home constructed from vintage barn timbers is on the market in Roxbury, Connecticut. The reclaimed farmhouse comes from carpenter Ed Cady, who in 1960 founded East Coast Barn Builders as a way to preserve English and Dutch Style barns in the United States.

This particular residence was completed in 1984 and was designed to resemble a barn from the 1800s. It measures 3,457 square feet and features an open play layout with soaring exposed timber ceilings and wide-plank pine flooring, mezzanine floor, and towering double-sided stone fireplace.

Rustic both inside and out, the home also boasts contemporary comforts, like a large kitchen, spacious and well-appointed second-floor bedrooms with vaulted ceilings, modern bathrooms (there are two and a half), and a family room. Located on just over five acres at 80 Chalybes Road, this Cady barn is offered at $750,000 after a recent price cut of $49,000. Take a look.
