Sleek Prefab Meets Rustic Red Barn – House of the Week


At first glance, the home at 5 S Ellsworth Rd in Sharon, CT, looks a little like an industrial shipping container. But inspired by barns and sheds, the architect designed a surprisingly warm, friendly space that’s flooded with natural light.
Thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows, the 2,100-square-foot home also shows off beautiful views of the 8-acre property.
Constructed in 2005, the main living space of the home feels part Don Draper and part Joanna Gaines, mixing Mid-Century Modern style – clean lines, stark white paint, open floor plan and period furniture – with a rustic fireplace, wide-plank flooring and marine-grade plywood walls.

The kitchen is ultramodern and bright, with new stainless steel appliances and plenty of prep space, including a center island. Both the interior and exterior are bold and original, so it’s no wonder it caught the attention of Dwell magazine.
The property also has a 600-square-foot guest apartment, located above the garage directly across from the main house. It includes a sleeping alcove, kitchen, bathroom, living room, laundry, fireplace and  balcony.
The home is currently listed for $650,000 by William Pitt Julia B Fee Sotheby’s International Realty.
