Though it’s only a short drive from downtown Boston, this home inside a former carriage house in Jamaica Plain feels worlds away. The duplex unit was once where Weld Mansion residents stored their horse-drawn coaches—now, the place is part of the Adams Arboretum Condominiums and asks $479,000.

The one-bedroom abode offers an elegant open-concept living and dining area. A spiral staircase dividing the living room leads to the sole bedroom, where there are cathedral ceilings, skylight windows, and a walk-in closet. Outside, a rear deck overlooks the Harvard-operated Arnold Arboretum, and there are tennis courts and a swimming pool for condo association members.
