I love the old barn on this property! This home was built for early settlers of the community. The home was built in 1780. It is located on 14.3 acres in Torrington, Connecticut. The home features hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings and a great fireplace. The interior has been a bit too modernized for me, but it’s a decent house with a great price considering the acreage. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms and 1,644 square feet. $369,900
