20th-Century Barn Is Transformed Into a Gorgeous Modern Home That’s Now for Sale

Barn Converted into a House

Architecture is a great example of how things that are seemingly past their prime can be rehabbed in spectacular ways. Jonathan Andersson and a team of carpenters demonstrated this in an impressive converted barn home remodel in which they fused two of the dilapidated structures into a single space. The result, located in Österlen, Sweden, is a strikingly modern 4,200 square-feet interior; if you didn’t know the structure’s history, you’d never realize that part of it dates back to the early 20th century.

The L-shaped interior is awash in white and light gray tones that, coupled with floor-to-ceiling windows, give it an open, airy feel. While this has the potential of feeling cold or sterile, Andersson and his team added visual excitement to the space by juxtaposing a variety of textures. Polished concrete floors and a paneled wood ceiling bring a beautiful depth to the monochromatic palette, and the timber beams add the rustic touch that hearkens back to its roots.

The floor plan includes four bedrooms and a “great room” with soaring 22-foot ceilings that points to an open kitchen. From there, a set of French doors lead to a wooden deck and pool with idyllic views of the rolling hills. If the rural country life is one for you, this gorgeous 1.5-acre property is now on the market via agent Lovisa Björnberg of Fastighetsbyrån for 5.995 million Swedish Krona, or around $680,000 USD.

Nestled among the rolling hills of the Swedish countryside is a converted barn home.
