Six Converted Carriage Houses on the Market in Massachusetts

Once used to stash horse-drawn carriages, these equestrian outbuildings have been renovated into show-stealing residences.


Repurposed buildings often end up making some of the most interesting homes; far from the cookie-cutter potential of new constructions, these renovation projects meld the old with the new in creative and spectacular ways. Among these one-of-a-kind abodes, converted carriage houses are some of the most appealing. Originally built for carriage storage and horse stables, these ancillary structures-turned-main residences aren’t tiny houses—some of these properties clock in at more than 5,000 square feet.

While some of these conversions very much maintained their horse-drawn history, others feature renovations so modern you’ll have to search to glean hints of their backstory. Below, see if you can spot some of the original details, from a game room with wrought iron stalls, water troughs, and overhead hay drops, to a stunning kitchen that occupies what was once a mere horse stall.
