Guest House

Reminiscent of a beautiful country barn, this stunning complement to the main house is trimmed in copper and has a beautiful cupola atop the double pitch Dutch style roof. A functional hay pulley sets off the front of the building. This structure provides another two oversize car spaces behind belt-driven “Carriage House” doors with glazing. This second climate-controlled double garage provides a large amount of storage. 

On the first floor, ceramic tile entry leads directly to the downstairs bedroom or the second-floor stairwell. The downstairs bedroom is carpeted and has access to a large 12’x12’ external deck and grassed area. There is a large utility room that houses the whole house water filter system that provides crystal clear drinking water to every faucet.

Upstairs is a beautiful airy space featuring 9’ ceilings. The large upstairs bedroom has multiple windows and features bamboo wood floors as does the remainder of the upstairs area.

The guest house has a full laundry (with front loading washer and dryer), large tiled bathroom with full bath and shower, a large living room, a large kitchen (with all amenities inc. dishwasher) with loads of cupboard space.

Fully conditioned with a two-stage York heat pump, this 2-bedroom apartment could house occasional guests, staff, family members, a tenant, or is a great AirBNB opportunity.

At the rear of the Carriage House is a large open undercover storage area for gardening tools and equipment. This provides some covered area for miscellaneous items, out of sight but handy.
