Despite being new construction, this barn was designed to look like it has been standing for hundreds of years. Russell Versaci Architects and Parker Construction designed the building to look as authentically historic as possible. The architectural design is based on the historic 3 bay barn style that was prevalent in the region. The foundation features a fieldstone veneer, mined from a nearby property. Stone masons were careful to keep the moss and lichens from the stone untouched, so when the foundation was installed it already had mossy vegetation, allowing it to appear instantly historic.
The entire house is made with wood — no plaster or sheetrock was used in the construction of the walls. The floor is comprised of various width Old Growth Eastern White Pine fastened with antique cut nails. These details lend to the authenticity of the barn.
This barn is the third structure on the home owner’s property and was designed for entertaining. The first floor shows has a kitchen with his and hers living rooms. The second floor features a game room with a ping pong table and a bunk room with custom built double set bunk beds. The airy loft features a custom designed wrought iron railing, which is also featured in a balcony that looks out onto Westport River.
