George S. Bowdoin Carriage House – $13,950,000

George S. Bowdoin Carriage House

Behind the flamboyant Dutch Revival style facade of this historic carriage house built in 1902, is a brilliant 3-story contemporary interior with vast expanses of space, towering ceilings, and sun-filled sky lights.  Built 25 x 100, the George S. Bowdoin Carriage House is described as an “exuberant gift to the block” by the American Institute of Architects, with its elaborate gable, whimsical horse and dog motifs, and original carriage doors.  Inside, a soaring spiral staircase unites the loft-like space from ground floor to third floor, which has a glass brick ceiling, allowing brilliant sunlight throughout, mingling with a “soft Vermeer light”, as described by a previous owner.  The layout includes a large reception area, 2 vast spaces (22′ x 62′ and 22′ x 45′), wood burning fireplace, 2 spacious rooms with baths en suite, chef’s kitchen, powder room, and terrace.  The carriage house has been used as a residence, art gallery, event space, and for Woody Allen’s film, “Whatever Works”.
