This beautiful Ayrshire gambrel barn building is located on 74 acres of land outside of an old sawmill community in Texas. Owners Art and Adriana Strahan dreamed of owning and running a vineyard in their retirement and knew they needed a functional and versatile barn-style building to serve as a gathering space. After their daughter requested to use the (then unbuilt) barn for her wedding, they accelerated their plans. The final barn structure was customized exactly to their taste by builder Ron Baker with vaulted ceilings, a wrap-around deck, a full-sized kitchen, and bride’s and groom’s suites. Since then, the barn building has hosted weddings and other events for friends, family, and community members and the Strahan’s have planted their first Muscadine vines. Whether you envision turning your land into a craft vineyard or brewery or want to start your hobby farm or ranch, Barn Pros has the right building for you! The Mill Barn at Walker’s Mill Vineyard and Winery.
The barn is located on a beautiful vineyard property and is a bonus to this incredible property. Vitis rotundifolia, or muscadine, is a grapevine species that is native to the southeastern and south-central United States from Florida to Delaware, west to eastern Texas, and Oklahoma. It has been extensively cultivated since the 16th century. The plants are well adapted to their native warm and humid climate, they need fewer chilling hours than better-known varieties and they thrive on the summer heat. When exploring the forest surrounding Walkers Mill Vineyard and Winery, you'll find a vast number of muscadine vines which can be found growing wild along the forest ground and among the trees.
