Live in a Converted Dairy Barn in Vienna for $979,000

The rolling hills of Virginia often inspire homeowners to create a contemporary-meets-farmhouse home, but why go for country-esque when you can go full on country with an actual dairy barn? This three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom Vienna home comes with all the features of its original barn skeleton — cathedral ceilings, sandblasted wood — but leaves out the dark, damp, and musty features typically associated with the structures. In a past life, the three-story listing housed Holstein cows and was constructed in 1937 for a farmer named Stuart Preece. By 1977, the structure was converted into a single-family home by developer Herbert Jonkers and architect Robert Schwartz. Stepping into the property, you can still find areas that reveal the home's past. For instance, the sunken living room was where the trough was located for the cattle, and the laundry room was once a milk shed. With a $979,000 asking price, the home also comes with a two-car garage, oversize stone fireplace, and outdoor pool.
