Almost a 100 years old. Unique loft apartment (with screened porch) in a carriage house with a private garage. Central location makes it a quick walk to downtown and 4th Street businesses.
There are two loft apartments in this barn-like structure. They are identical in size and layout. They are both private, separated by stairs and a foyer.
I run my seasonal rentals like an upscale B&B. I believe in old fashioned hospitality. For your arrival I leave a bottle of wine, flowers and generally a treat of dark chocolate. Book at Easter and get a chocolate bunny! We always try to make our properties exceptional.
Access garage with keypad or car remote. Original oak staircase leads to the second floor. Second floor landing is decked out with whimsical old prints, books . . . and a porch swing.
The lofts are 500 square feet including porch. Bigger than most hotel rooms. Living room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. Well designed to maximize space and light.
New 40" Smart TV rotates to watch from many angles. Teal French doors separate living room from bedroom and give added privacy.
Lots of windows on the west side capture late evening sun. Look through slatted shutters to the grassy lot below. Great place to walk a dog.
New queen size bed has a pillow top mattress. Beach watercolor over bed coordinates with the multicolor pinstripe duvet on the bed. Lots of pillows.
Short hop from the bedroom to the bathroom. Behind the paisley shower curtain is a claw foot tub with shower. Old medicine cabinet is from another era. Above is a double school house light fixture for maximum illumination. We added a few extra wire baskets for storage.
White towels are packed in a nearby shabby chic style cabinet. Washer/dryer behind multi-panel faux finished doors. Larger closet in living room for wardrobe.
Breakfast table just off the kitchen. Additional eating area on the screen porch makes a good place for a glass of wine at dusk. And an old leaded glass door adds extra class.
Kitchen is functional and bright. Under counter lighting and ceiling fan add to the ambiance. Yellow knobs give an extra whimsical touch. Kitchen is complete with range, microwave, refrigerator and even a dishwasher. White square tile on the kitchen counters is trimmed with oak. Herringbone subway pattern on wall. Original old farmhouse sink. Shabby chic cupboard over head. Wine glasses hang from holders to give maximum storage for dishes and food. Butcher block cutting board.
To the very left is the pantry. The small mahogany door with bamboo shade is from the captain’s quarters off an old ship. The captain carved his name on the door. Not exactly the name you would expect!
This is a fun retreat for two people. A little quirky . . . but with everything you need. Plus, it puts you right in town.
