This 19-acre estate in West Cornwall, Connecticut is called “The Barn.” It was designed in 1920 by architect Henry Olko and has been “beautifully and cleverly redesigned for modern living,” according to the listing. The main house has a cool glass entry vestibule, as well as rustic details like beamed ceilings and a massive cut fieldstone fireplace. There’s also a four-car garage, pond, stone walls, and extensive gardens, all surrounded by views of the Catskills, Taconic Range, and the Housatonic River. It’s on the market for $2,200,000.

The property is bordered by the Cornwall Conservation Trust, meaning its views are protected.

Surrounding the home are extensive flower gardens, lush shrubbery and hedges, specimen trees, and a spring-fed aerated pond.

The entrance is through an enclosed glass pass-through foyer with a stone floor and barn board doors.

Off one end is the massive great room, which has an architectural beamed ceiling and a massive cut fieldstone fireplace with a raised hearth. Four sets of French doors lead to a raised bluestone patio.

The eat-in kitchen is also very spacious and overlooks the pond through floor-to-ceiling glass windows. It comes complete with custom patina-finished cabinetry, a stone tile back splash, two Sub-Zero built-in refrigerators, a six-burner WOLF range, and a huge center island with additional storage and two built-in butcher block cutting boards.

Throughout, there are high ceilings, expansive windows, travertine stone and wide-plank hardwood floors, and crown moldings.

There is one bedroom suite on the first floor and two substantial en-suite bedrooms on the second floor, as well as a luxurious primary suite.

The four-car detached garage offers a bonus 1,500-square-foot tiled lower level that can be used as a studio or exercise room.

The home is just minutes from Cornwall’s town center and Metro-North. It’s also close to Cream Hill Lake and Mohawk Mountain.
