From the Zillow listing:


Barn Living – An authentic dairy barn, circa 1900, has been reborn and showcases charming exposed hand-hewn beams framing each room. The entry hallway is a whimsical greeting featuring the original dairy stanchions. On the main level are the kitchen, dining and living areas. The kitchen portion is an addition to original barn and is equipped with stainless appliances including a double oven DCS range. The second level consists of a large living area with a soaring ceiling and 4 bedrooms. The master bedroom has a walk-in closet, a fabulous bath with large shower plus separate soaking tub, and a winding staircase to a loft area.


The original silo has been refinished and its three levels can serve as excellent space for an office, gym, or playroom. The 2-car garage, on the lower level, is equipped with a supercharger for electric cars. The home is set on 14.72 bucolic acres with frontage along the Housatonic River and includes a heated pool, small cabana, and lovely perennial gardens. Included in this offering is a neighboring three bedroom Cape, built in 2003, set on 5+ acres that would make a great guest house. The first floor features a wonderfully open layout and cathedral ceiling and incorporates a spacious eat-in kitchen, living room, as well as two bedrooms (one currently used as a den). Upstairs one finds an additional bedroom with private bath.
