In addition to a main house with seven bedrooms and six baths, this expansive estate boasts a carriage house for guests on the edge of the property. Here, visitors can enjoy their own living room, kitchen and two bedrooms with an attached bath.
Above the six-bay garage, the carriage house offers an open concept living area complete with an eat-in kitchen and sitting area by the fireplace. Warm wood paneled walls and a vaulted ceiling give a luxurious cabin feel to the space.
This 5,000-square-foot carriage house — mainly dedicated to car storage and display — was designed to evoke the feel of a 150-year-old barn. The stone walls were erected with some of the original stones taken from walls built by farmers who previously owned the property.
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.
This home was designed to straddle the worlds of both traditional and modern design in terms of both style as well as separation. While this house is detached, and has front and rear yards, it is also influenced by older homes with carriage houses in front.
