For a certain segment of the home-seeking population, houses with converted barns on the property are the ne plus ultra of North Fork real estate. Coveted by creatives, they tend to go for over a million and are snapped up almost as soon as they hit the market. Which is why this newly-listed home with a restored barn in the back garden is such an amazing find. And as one of the first residences in Cutchogue, the house is a veritable piece of history. Built by one Austin Benjamin Tuthill in the spring of 1848, it was originally a white-painted single-story structure with green shutters that was raised to two stories in 1880. Local records show that the property originally held numerous barns, a milk house, and pig pens. In the spring, the farmstead’s cows produced milk that had the distinct flavor of the wild garlic on which they grazed.
