This 1939 carriage house breathes a new life
in the 21st century.
Project Style: Greek Revival
Size: 2 bedrooms; 3 bathrooms 1,800 sq. ft.
Home Story: Originally meant to house Model T’s, this eclectic renovation went through multiple design iterations in the homeowners’ minds.
The gentleman tended toward a more ornate look with period details, the lady – contemporary, clean lines. The final collaboration respectfully incorporated period elements in a contemporary expression. The homeowners freely admit that their passion for design can present challenges, but Sunset always rose to the occasion. “Mark never said no. He would always find a way.”
Challenges & Points of Interest: Gut the entire structure, bring all operations up to today’s standards, and do it all under the watchful eye
of the Historic District’s Architectural Review Committee. From the carriage house doors, doric columns and Boston hip roof, all exterior details
had to have ARC’s approval.
