New England is filled with homes that lose their charms over the years to owners who chased fleeting design trends. But this Dedham home uses today’s trends in ways all its own. With a rustic country kitchen, brightly painted rooms, and a separate, spacious playhouse, this house is an unusual find.
Built in 1892, this converted carriage house boasts high ceilings and tall windows to create a space filled with light. Some of the original appointments of the carriage house adorn the front and rear staircase. A large foyer with a brick floor adds a surprising touch when you first enter the home. A country kitchen with a gas stove, brick fireplace, and kitchen island painted light blue opens up into space for a little breakfast nook. A high-ceiling dining room with built-in cabinets and a fireplace makes the perfect backdrop for more elegant meals.
The first floor has a variety of spaces for entertaining guests, including a spacious living room with a fireplace and a wide-spanning sunroom that overlooks a backyard filled with gardens, a hot tub, and a stone patio. But the truly unique feature of the house lies further in the back: a 784-square-foot guest house with a half bath and lofted sleeping space. The separate structure is great for a round of pool or having people over to watch a game.
But this home won’t just delight those in need of a space for the game. On the first floor of the main structure is a brightly painted, paneled library with a fireplace to read by and enough built-in shelving for all your literary collections. Upstairs, find four bedrooms and a bonus room perfect for a home gym.
