A Yankee Barn Timber Frame On The Rugged Coast Of Maine

These two things fit together like hand and glove. A Yankee Barn Home and the rugged coast of Maine. Nothing says “Downeast Maine” like a post and beam structure with the words “Yankee Barn” in the title. But don’t take my word for it, see for yourself.

This award-winning home was built keeping its surroundings in mind. Even the exterior colors of coastal grey and forest green were chosen to meld with the rocky and rugged terrain of Bar Harbor, Maine.

As you approach the entrance, the eyes are treated to a garden of native plantings and reflecting pool built from indigenous seaside rock.

Upon entering the home you immediately understand the juxtaposition of rugged timbers and refined spaces…

…and a warm sense of welcome envelopes you as you step even further into the living space.

With each turn you take something new and eye-catching is revealed. Always present, tying everything together, is the beautiful post and beam frame. It makes all the elements, structural and decorative, work together in perfect harmony.

Even the lavatory gets in on the act with the post and beam frame presenting the perfect contrast to the coastal theme wallpaper.

Should you be wondering where the lofted ceilings are, never fear. They are on the upper level in the master and guest bedrooms. Made to appear as a more typical New England period home, the dormers have been bumped up and out a notch to allow for a light and spacious feel while also affording fantastic views.

Each overnight guest is treated to their own private vaulted ceiling.

All things considered, life is pretty darn good in a Yankee Barn home among the tall pines on the coast of Maine. Just ask the happy owners!
