The main section of the larger (effectively three stories) big timber post and beam barn is circa 1800, with extensions dating from the early 1900s. It’s massive, hand hewn posts, beams and floors are in excellent condition overall, featuring original period joinery and pegged wood construction.
Most recent maintenance of the tin roof, which is in excellent overall condition, was performed in 2019.
A truly unique property in an idyllic location, showcasing the history of New England’s handcrafted barns from the 1700s to the early 1900s.

Maintain and restore the original structures and build a bespoke country home on the property, or convert the existing post and beam barn into a spectacular year round residence.
