Since we first noted the Texas-born trend a few years back, barndominiums have evolved from no-frills metal sheds into often spectacular living spaces-with distinct attitude. And the trend keeps moving forward and evolving.
For one, the exteriors have morphed into a more stylish look that almost makes the barn go bye-bye. And the multipurpose buildings are also going luxe, adding amenities like infinity pools, outdoor kitchens, and high-end finishes inside.
About those deluxe finishes? “We’re seeing more and more people wanting them,” says agent Lindi Braddock.
Buyers also love the convenience of these structures, separated from normal tract life. “Out in the country, it’s where you can have everything in one place,” says Braddock.
She’s the listing agent of the Bellville, TX, barndominium we’ve highlighted below. The home is already in “pending sale” status. “It was very well done,” she says, noting that buyers appreciated the high ceilings, high-end kitchen, and abundant light.
In addition to the Bellville beauty, We’ve found four other barndominiums on the market, all of which have added finesse to the finished product. Open the barn door and have a look…
Barn-storming style: Further proof that barndominiums don’t have to be bare-bones! This luxe build includes an open-concept layout, stained concrete flooring, a huge kitchen with stone counters and stainless steel appliances, a formal dining room, a workshop, and a pool with outdoor kitchen, bar seating, and fireplace. The gated property is pricey because it comes with over 262 acres.
Barn-storming style: Car collectors, get your motor runnin’. The custom-built home contains a “perfect set-up for car restoration,” with an attached shop/barn that has room for 12 cars and a car lift. For those wanting to spend time outside the workshop, there’s also an infinity pool with spa, fountains, patio seating, and kiddie pool. The structure also contains covered space for dining and lounging. Inside is a large modern kitchen and family room, plus two beds and two baths spread over 2,800 square feet of living space. “You can drive right into it and have all the toys,” says agent Lindi Braddock.
Barn-storming style: The two-story farmhouse sits on 1.5 acres and comes with an attached shop that can fit four cars.
