Our home of the month: An important historic carriage house built in 1908, this 6,000 sq. ft.+, 5 bedroom, 4 full and 2 half bath New Canaan home with an in ground pool was converted into a fully developed residence in 1952. Great care was taken to insure that the character and grace of the original structure was preserved. It is important to note that the carriage drivers lived from the beginning in 1908 in small staff rooms on the second floor.  (So actually, in the early years it was a residence, albeit for the staff!)

The Great Room or family room has 31 feet long original ceiling beams, which span the entire length of the room, from the huge stone fireplace to the far wall, overlooking the property.   

The living room, which appears to have been added in the early 20th century, has a pattern of double beams and support beams, which rise to the cathedral height ceiling and are from a 19th century Vermont barn. 

The current owners designed and built an attached cedar and pine log guest house to the main house. Here, the ceilings are built with both whole logs and cedar paneling.April-Web-HP-Carter-pool
