In Curbed’s House of the Day column, we drool over historic Victorians and can’t get enough of midcentury stunners. But we have a soft spot for a barn conversion, and the latest to catch our eye is this two-bedroom, two-bath version in Harwinton, Connecticut.

Constructed in 1930 and painted a perfect apple red, the historic barn was remodeled into a 3,950-square-foot house. The main living areas feature an open floor plan that showcases the barn’s original beams and wood flooring. A large brick fireplace adds coziness, and an updated kitchen features a six-burner gas stove, two ovens, a grill top, and a stainless steel hood vent.

The home sits on 4.73 idyllic acres; there’s a spring fed pond with a fountain, stonewalls, a stone gazebo, and a large deck for entertaining. And if you need more storage, this listing has you covered with a five car garage. Interested? 47 South Road is on the market now for $524,900.
