Carriage House

This lovely carriage house with year-round garden room and garage complements a charming center hall colonial that stands among the open fields and cow barns of Durham, CT. Lisa redefined the typical carriage house design by adding a large patio space, stunning staircase, stepped garden beds and beautiful walls. The single-bay garage with double doors is spacious and finished in warm, rustic knotty pine while featuring a vintage work bench Lisa handcrafted from salvage pieces. In the exquisite garden room, windows 16-feet tall overlook the patio, yard and rolling hills, complemented by composite interior walls with the style of white shiplap paneling. Reclaimed chestnut beams serve as collar ties against the cedar-planked ceiling. Heat escapes easily on summer days and skylights welcome in the outdoors while sensors close them automatically when raindrops fall. This magnificent room also includes a soapstone sink handcrafted in Vermont, an antique-inspired French cabinet Lisa created and several pieces salvaged from a factory, along with textured bluestone flooring that flows beautifully to the patio area. Rich with detail, this carriage house captures Lisa’s Cashmere & Blue Jeans™ ethos of rustic, refined, comfortable and chic.
