    Im loving this carriage house! This has the potential to be a fantastic little house. Aside from updating the electrical and putting in a kitchen and bathroom, the rest of the house is an open floor plan. It makes me almost as excited as I was with the 1896 NC church that was listed. So much potential!

    I like this carriage house better than the main house, and it hasn’t been messed with yet!

    And I don’t mind the proposed development concept in general, except for the fact that it seems to be proposing to demo that also great looking barn!!!! If it hasn’t already been done. I so hope it is still there and can be saved!

      “A community of high performance net-zero-ready homes, some are created from historic early 1800s barn frames that are on-site and helped define the history of this once in a lifetime property opportunity.”

      Oh no, it sounds like the barn is toast, or is planned to be. Not sure why they can’t just keep the barn and move the new house lots to the open area in the front? Am I missing the obvious, what I think would be much better, design solution to this proposed development? ‘Net-zero’ would be a lot more net-zero if they just keep the barn as is and build new houses without tearing down the barn.

      Keep the barn there and offer it as a community asset/space for the rest of the houses as well.

    It is sad that the barn is being separated from the house. It really is a treasure. You have to admire the skill in the way it has been built. It would make an amazing home. I cannot imagine not wanting to convert it.

  5. Oh how I wish to be able to buy up the whole original estate and return it to it’s glory and prestige.

    If I couldn’t swing having horses to put in the barn, and carriages to put in the carriage house, I would lightly and tastefully renovate. I’m sure a vacation/BnB rental could bring in a decent side income.
