Out-swinging garage doors carry on the Gothic theme found in other architectural elements of this home and add excitement to a previously overlooked space. Now a carriage house, the space is home to a sleek and well-appointed guest suite.
A custom garage door opens to a private balcony in this sleek, chic carriage house guest space, which once served as a detached garage. The suite is fully equipped for guests' comfort, including this private outdoors space that allows company to enjoy the property's pretty views.
Three tall panes of leaded, frosted glass provide privacy for a shower created from a window bay in this storybook carriage house. The open shower features a waterfall shower head, and a sliding mechanism allows for a barn door-style enclosure. A petite teak table keeps bathing accessories close at hand for guests.
Front carriage-style doors open to reveal a garage fully stocked with top-of-the-line recreational equipment, a work bench, a lounge area for relaxing, a dining table and decidedly collegiate plaid papered walls.
Joanna Gaines' guiding principle in designing for the carriage house was to incorporate as much character as possible and do so in a style that suitably matched that of the recently restored B&B. She added rustic accents like the tool bin used for filing papers, french doors and an antique wood desk.
This small urban landscape design for the entry of a 1920s hillside house incorporates an eclectic mix of plantings with contemporary hardscape design using bluestone and pebbles. A custom-designed interpretation of the old carriage house doors updated the look while respecting the integrity of the architecture. The space is completed by a fountain which provides a welcoming presence for people as well as hummingbirds.
The front of the home was reimagined with steps leading to a more pronounced portico. A stacked stone veneer dresses up the singled facade, while the addition of a carriage style garage door adds extra charm.
This lovely split-level home blends in beautifully with the trees and lawn around it, thanks to its soft gray-green siding. The stone facade and steps provide a touch of nature while the carriage-style garage doors and elegant wood front door add a bit of Craftsman charm.
