THIS HOUSE WAS A 100-YEAR OLD BARN
Built In 1919 And Still Standing Strong!
Don’t let the dark facade of this barn fool you into thinking it’s the same on the inside. A peek into its five front windows show a bright, airy, and minimalist interior. This is a total 360 from what the barn’s original purpose was when it was built in 1919. Back then, it housed livestock in what could be a messy and dreary interior.
Today, more than a hundred years later, the barn has been repurposed into a cozy home. Despite its new use, the original hemlock structure of the barn was still used to preserve the feel and look of the old barn. Inside, this barn-turned-home has an open layout structure that has all the basic amenities and more. It has four bedrooms and three bathrooms as well as an outdoor patio and swimming pool.
The 4,500 sq. ft. property sits at the foot of a mountain in Quebec, providing breathtaking views and lots of nature activities to its guests. As good as this barn house is, it is, unfortunately, privately owned.
Patriotic to their home city of Montreal, the architects selected mostly local materials such as hemlock spruce. While the exterior maintained its aged wood facade and rustic agrarian roots, the interior has a modern touch influenced by contemporary design.
