Perched high and mighty atop Aspinwall Hill, this former carriage house for sale in Brookline could double as a castle. The Shingle-style abode was built in 1889 by architects Hartwell and Richardson, and was originally a barn for a residence called the Otis Shepard House.

Today, the place is steeped in contemporary flair. A set of double doors built to allow horse carriages to pass through it opens to a spacious, airy interior. Modern touches grace the home’s more than 6,000 square feet, including creative light fixtures, mahogany accents, and skylight windows. They strike a balance with the home’s antique features, like its turret, cathedral ceilings, and exposed beams.
