Sixty years ago, carpenter and contractor Ed Cady founded East Coast Barn Builders, which not only constructs new homes made to look like 18th- and 19th-century barns, but actually preserves and relocates historic English- and Dutch-style barns. This Cady masterpiece in Roxbury, Connecticut incorporates both. The 17.5-acre Rockridge estate includes a 10,346-square-foot mansion that is a Colonial reproduction flanked by two pristine Civil War-era barns from upstate New York, which were dismantled and reassembled onsite. The incredible interiors include hand-built cabinetry, locally forged hardware, and soaring beamed ceilings. The property is on the market for $4,250,000.
