Along with beautiful interiors and a swoon-worthy deck overlooking the Haro Strait, this converted barn is a part of history. It’s located on the San Juan Islands off of Washington state, which in the aftermath of the Pig War, a conflict between the United States and Great Britain over the territory in the mid-1850s, officially became a part of the U.S. Now, the island is a popular tourist destination for kayakers and whale-watchers, and this converted barn has a front row seat to all the action.
Situated on 14 acres of land, the house features a spacious open concept main floor with plenty of seating areas and three compact bedrooms on the second floor. While the house has definitely had a makeover since its days as a barn, many rustic elements are still present, from the wooden staircase and the peaked ceilings, to the old wood-burning stove.
