About This Old House

Charming, welcoming Carriage House was built in 1870 as part of a 65 acre estate called Bel-Aire. Carriage House contained horse stalls, now the kitchen, & the 1st floor bedroom is where the carriages were stored. The Grooms lived on the 2nd floor. This home is currently owned by a cabinet maker & furniture maker, so the cabinets, crown moldings, floors & Black Walnut Staircase are done by the eye of an artistic master! The liv room flr is beautiful heart pine & the flrs upstairs are the orig floors. Kitchen cabinets are tiger maple/cherry, the center island has a 2 1/2 inch solid cherry counter top and the kitchen counters are butcher block. Over Viking Stove is 1 of a kind woven sassafras hood. Ceilings on first floor are 11-12 feet high.House has a very open floorplan. Beautiful crown moldings abound. The 1st flr bedrm has just been updated and has a Dutch door to the outside, so could be used as a bedroom or office, etc. It has newer windows, a paddle fan & recessed lights. The carriage doors were cut in half & used as the walls in mudroom. And iron stall grills are now used on either side of the front steps. Half bath has a tumbled marble floor & has crown molding. Vintage Clawfoot Tub. Amazing creativity. House is secluded but is open & airy with lots of glass so you will be in touch with nature, but you are still part of a neighborhood. The quality in this house is only found once in a lifetime. You won’t want to miss this one! Please stay out of the barn, unsafe.
