Great old barn! Nine acres in Connecticut. Circa 1880. $267,000

September 5, 2021

That’s a great old barn! The barn was built for beef cows back in the day. The land was used for hay and farming vegetables. The house was built in 1880. It is located on 9.5 acres in Colchester, Connecticut. The house definitely needs some work and updating, but this could be a nice farm. The home has some original hardwood floors and wainscoting. There is a covered front porch. I hate the filter they used on the pictures. It’s hard to see the details. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms and 1,568 square feet. $267,000
