-We are SO excited to share with you the latest destination home in our group of 5 star voted homes. Will be ready in July of 2015...
The Carriage House at Cushman Place: 1800s carriage and horse barn (1830) converted to home (1920) recreated as luxury Guesthouse (2015.) We are in the middle of the dramatic recreation of this charming home 1 walking block from Plymouth Harbor.

We understand, you need a hotel but want a home. You'd like a historic B+B, but don't want to rub elbows with Mr and Mrs Innkeeper who will regale you with their political leanings at breakfast. You want privacy, a beautiful in-town stay, understated luxury and comfort, a classy kitchen with high-end appliances, room to spread out, space to sort through your maps, guidebooks, history books, cameras and coffee. Check email via WiFi, catch the news on digital cable tv. Enjoy comfortable bedrooms with quality linens, new bathrooms with granite countertops, in a yesteryear home you can rent like a hotel so you can play tourist without getting stuck in a bland boxy room even lacking a mini-bar, forget a glorious big kitchen. Think of this Residence as hotel with no lobby, a B+B with no innkeeper, a home away from home. Rarely-offered but easy-to-find in historic downtown Plymouth, this 2 story, 5 bedroom carriage house-style residence is 1 city block from the harbor, historic sites, restaurants, boutiques and antiques shops.

Fully central air conditioned throughout the home, you will find on the main level, a large airy fireplace living room , wraparound breezy farmer's porch newly rebuilt, stylish island kitchen with bay window seating plus bar stool perching at the marble island work center. Sub Zero refrigerator, gas range with pro hood, so charming. Tucked under the old back staircase is a powder room for guests, totally separate from the beautiful first floor bedroom and full shower bath - a graceful amenity created for the main purpose of accommodating our revered elder guests and those with a bit of mobility issues. Flat screen TVs in just the right places for around the home enjoyment. Upstairs, which you get to from the wide antique staircase, where the ceiling vaults two stories up to carriage house windows, large carriage lanterns hanging from 12 foot chains, airy, spacious, … well onto the bedrooms… large sunny master bedroom with king bed and flat screen tv, private shower bathroom with large shower and recessed toilet cubby with interior privacy window for a fun -see through the house with total privacy charm. On the bedroom level there is also a peaceful east facing bedroom (double bed) plus a large 3-dormer singles room with 3 single beds for kids or adult singles who can sleep in the most dramatic room of the house. Again, all is centrally air conditioned. Shower bathroom and laundry room on second floor for the non-master bedrooms.

Step out your door, and 30 feet away, a few times a year are the famous Parades at Thanksgiving and Independence day. A block away is the harbor and whale watch boats, seafood eateries, restaurants, fine dining, and even fresh caught seafood to bring home and grill. Historic sites abound, along with walk-to-everything boutiques, antiques, museums, art galleries (not like Provincetown, but we are getting there!)

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: See my other listings for info about our rare destination homes

Why the Owner Chose Plymouth:
Plymouth is historic, Plymouth is American's beginnings. Sometimes you have to look twice to recognize that mansion (now professional office condos or lawyers offices) or that textile mill (now partly gone, partly Isaacs Restaurant, winery, visitor's center.) So look twice and see this 1830s carriage house, underneath its 1920s conversion to charming home, and 2015's updating to upscale luxury historic Guest House.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Walk to all of Historic downtown Plymouth attractions - 1 block to whale watch boats and harbor, 2 blocks to Plymouth Rock and Mayflower ship, 3 blocks to Brewster Gardens park and stream. Walk to restaurants, museums, art galleries, coffee shops and boutique, antique malls and fancy clothiers, Setting the Space, the Exchange Antques, Blue Blinds Bakery, Plymouth Center for the Arts, monuments, statures, gardens, souvenirs, tee shirts, pubs and more pubs, lobster, gourmet, clam shack, upscale Italian, tea room, chocolatier, more...
