Greenwich English Style Barn
30 X 40 feet | circa 1800 | Greenwich, New York
This historic barn is an incredible gem. With massive timbers and american chestnut hewn rafters, it is a rare example from New England. The frame sits on the edge of beautiful rolling farm meadows in the town of Greenwich, New York. The massive timbers and open first floor make this frame ideal for a great room with a partial second floor.
1200 feet of living space on the first floor
Oak posts, pine girts and top plates, and chestnut rafters
Clear span frame with massive double girts
The largest girt measures 11 inches by 19 inches by 30 feet
This frame comes with vintage roof boards that have beautiful color
This frame is ideal for a barn home, garage, studio, or shop space. Because there are no middle posts in the internal bents, the floor space is wide open for the next owner to design the living space. The massive girts and large posts give this frame a medieval feeling, while the beautiful hewn chestnut rafters would create an intimate feeling in a second floor. The bent layout makes this frame ideal for a one third or two thirds loft.
