One-of-a-kind luxury condominium alternative. This single family home, a 5 bedroom renovated Carriage House, sits inside the prestigious Wheatsheaf Townhome development. Enjoy the ease of community living plus the exclusive use of a 1.3 acre lot, carefree.
The century old carriage house, built in 1910, belonging to the Gustav Kissel estate has been lovingly restored and renovated for today's family. Many elements from the original carriage house were incorporated into the transformation. The foot print of the structure remains the same, the exterior, constructed of red Hanover Brick, trimmed in limestone and blue slate with a granite foundation remains the same yet enhanced with a new front entrance and portico. The original interior sliding barn doors, exposed beams and brick walls also remain. Modern conveniences abound in the gourmet kitchen (Thermador, Miele, Sub-Zero) with its timeless Arts and Crafts style cabinetry and terra-cotta tile and brick flooring. Off the kitchen you’ll find the mud room area, laundry, walk-in pantry and nanny/in-law suite. The front foyer is inviting with cherry plank floors and wide trim.
The living room dining room area is a spectacular space complete with a 32 foot façade over the central wood burning fireplace. Fun and games are waiting in the large family room highlighted by an original sliding door and square windows which once gave the horses light in each stall. A wet bar now stands in the original tack room. Multiple French doors lead to the professionally landscaped yard and blue stone patio.
Rising up the cherry staircase you reach the magnificent second floor great room which looks down the living room below. This grand space has built-in Cherry shelving, a desk on one side plus a den/ library area on the other, complete with the convenience of a small refrigerator.
