This guest house and garage recalls the spirit of an Eighteenth century carriage house. Set in a beautiful valley 75 miles north of New York City, it is a part of a family estate, comprised of a large clapboard main house built in the Eighteen hundreds, several barns and other accessory buildings.
The owners wanted to house their guests and their cars in a building which fit the context and felt as though it had been built in the same period as the main house. The ground floor includes a heated two-car garage with indoor and outdoor storage. The second floor guest room features chestnut flooring and hand-hewn beams.
