This historic carriage house has been converted into a cool, contemporary loft-like space while still preserving some amazing vintage details.
This gorgeous conversion is located in the Spring Garden Historic District in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Currently on the market for $1,690,000, this home had 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, but no mention of square footage. I guessing at least 3,000, maybe 4,000 or 5,000 – this place is spacious!
Look at the exposed trusses!
The Second Floor Features A Dramatic Great Room With 18 [foot] Ceilings With Beams & Original Carriage Hoist of Pulley & Gears Plus 2 Cupolas.

Wonderful windows seat…
I just love the decor – a bit of that Swedish vibe with integrated vintage elements like the reclaimed wood floors.
And the kitchen…
WOWZERS! That is a one-of-a-kind bar!
All of the elements and colors come together so perfectly in this kitchen – I can’t stop staring at it.
If you can take your eyes off the kitchen decor for a moment and look up…
…the orginal carriage hoist complete with gears and pulleys!
Even the bathrooms are tricked-out with radiant heat floors, full glass walled shower and polished concretes sinks…
The huge master suite also has its own laundry room.
The guest room feels cottagey with these vaulted ceilings…
Being true to its roots, this carriage house also has a one bay internal garage with an additional 1,300 square feet of unfinished space that could be a workshop or artist’s studio.
This Philadelphia historic district home also features a 1,380 square foot garden terrace, complete with lawn and planting bed….

Friday is finally here!
It’s been a long week for us here in Colorado with some surreal images of raging infernos in the land that we love seared into our minds.
Things have calmed down for the time being and people who have lost their homes and everything they own are just now finding out.
The problem with the widlfire type of natural disaster is that they are so sudden and you have little to no warning. Most of the evacuated people had mere minutes to get out and grab what they could – some with only the clothes on their backs.
Tragically, the police chief just announced on tv that two lives were lost in one of the homes that burned to the ground.
This is a really rough time for Coloradans – our worst case scenario.
Kudos to all the hard-working professionals (both on the front lines and behind the scenes) for all their dedication and hard work.
