Barn and Attic

There are two large unobstructed spaces in the house.

These could make a great artist studio, a musician or dance studio, workshop, home theatre, play room, independent guest or in-law apartment, or office space to the extent it is consistent with the Town’s zoning regulations.

The Barn Upper Level is connected to the upper level of the main house via the enclosed bridge, with no steps. This space is 1,456 SF, and is entirely standing height, and also has a direct entrance and staircase from the driveway. A half-bath is already approved for this space.

There is a large barn double door at one end, and a steel beam is already installed to lift and bring in large objects such a grand piano or heavy equipment.

The floor is over structured so as to provide a stable feeling without the bounce typically found in residential floor construction.

The second large unobstructed space is the Attic of the main house. It is approximately 2,000 SF and is structurally built such that the floor can take the full load of a living floor. The space adjacent to the eaves is low. This is where duct work would likely be installed, or storage created behind a knee-wall.

There is a comfortable walk-up staircase at one end. With simple framing modifications a staircase could be added at the other end.
