Vintage Village Carriage House – Ipswich, Massachusetts
What do you need if you own a first period home in Ipswich? A carriage house to match it to hold all of your modern day amenities! From the cobblestone pavers to the custom made transom window this veritable carriage house as garage fits in its space and place in history like no other. A handily made roof over the garage door was constructed to look as if it holds barn door tracks rather than a convenient garage door. The vertical shiplap siding and white cedar shingles; the antique hardware, sourced from the original home, and handmade historic strap hinges on the passage door; the vintage looking casement windows with fifteen simulated divided lights and oversized muntins; and the handsome period color on the shiplap…all nods to the past to make this carriage house fit seamlessly into its surroundings.
