This impressive three-bedroom, four-bath conversion in Connecticut is the stuff of barn home dreams. Originally constructed in 1797, the barn suffered from a fire before it was purchased by design-minded owners in 2014. A top-to-bottom restoration ensued, working to combine a modern aesthetic while maintaining the barn’s gorgeous lines and heritage.

A silo, soaring ceilings, barn siding, and exposed hand-hewn white oak posts and beams point to the structure’s original purpose. But new windows, French doors, wide-plank oak flooring, and smart home technology add modern comforts.

The main level includes an open floor plan with large stone fireplace, dining area, and kitchen. The master suite sits above with a large sitting area and bath in the restored silo, and walk-in closets. The silo also houses the other bedrooms and baths on the upper and lower levels. A media room opens up to the back portion of the property.

Outside, a front porch, stone-lined gunite pool, landscaped pond, pergola, and an orchard compliment the 3.6-acre property’s grassy lawns.

If you’ve been pining for a restored barn, 316 Kent Cornwall Road is on the market now for $1,295,000.
