Modern marvel

A daring renovation brings a carriage house back to its former glory—with a few modern touches

Located in a cozy apartment in a remodeled carriage house, this kitchenette features a dishwasher, refrigerator and microwave.

The elevator leads to all three levels, which are visible from the bottom floor. The homeowner left the space around the elevator empty so he could enjoys the views of all the levels.

Dark green built-in cabinets provide convenient storage to keep this garage uncluttered. The cabinets hide everything from lawn equipment to a washer and dryer.

The storage area in this renovated carriage house is home to the building’s mechanicals, as well as this planting area.

This cozy bedroom design is accented with a brick veneer wall. Located in a renovated carriage house, the area was previously an unused attic space.

This bath features a marble-topped vanity, porcelain flooring and eye-catching tile wainscoting.

His-and-her desks run along the wall of the living space, across from the television. The homeowners often use this space—located just across from their main home in a recently restored carriage house—as a relaxing retreat.

Indiana Gray limestone and mahogany bookcases set the English tone in this library design. The exposed brick wall is original to the carriage house that hosts the library and was saved during the restoration project.

The custom wood ceiling beams and Old Growth Red Oak floors that were implemented in this carriage house during a restoration project keep with the old-fashioned theme.
