Explore this beautiful high-performance modern barn home in the quaint picturesque town of Weathersfield, Vermont. The “Morning Glory,” the official name, is situated on 138 acres and features spectacular views of the valley below. 

The barn house design is a simple and traditional New England design, however, the interior features unique modern finishings and an open first-floor plan. There are no interior partition walls on the first floor, even the stairs are open and were designed to be floating. The combination of the warm exposed timber frame beams and modern touches make this a timber frame home welcoming and a perfect place for entertaining.

The modern barn home features lots of windows, to take advantage of the Northeast facing views of the valley below. The windows in the living room are tilt and turn, a common window style found in Europe. The tilt and turn windows can swing in like a door and tilt in for ventilation and they are perfect for the views and to bring in a natural breeze. 

The second floor features a grand master suite with vaulted ceilings and a wall of windows. The luxurious master bathroom features a soaking tub, perfect for relaxing after a long day. Also on the second floor is another bedroom, bathroom, and a library. 

This home also features a walk-out basement, equipped with two bedrooms, a bathroom, and an office. Catch a glimpse of the beautiful valley by walking out on to the stone patio leading out from the basement. 

Another spectacular feature of this home is its optimal energy efficiency. Our clients chose an R40 for the walls and R54 for the roof making this home off the charts for energy performance.
