Rich Cribs: Former carriage house in Lattingtown personifies 'charm'
Look up the definition of charming in the dictionary and you just might see a picture of this Lattingtown property, which is on the market for $1.950 million.
Set on a lush one-acre-plus property, the 10-room brick and stone home was built in 1914 as a carriage house. Showcasing extensive millwork, built-in shelves, French doors and a fireplace, the house has been remodeled over the years by various owners, says listing agent Elise Mackay, an associate broker of Piping Rock Associates.
Offering an open layout, the main floor with 12-foot ceilings has a center hall with a bookcase at its core, from which all rooms are accessible. The dining room is open to the living room, while the other side of the center hall includes the family room and updated kitchen. There are four bedrooms and 3½ baths, including the master suite.
The landscape includes a front courtyard with slate walkways surrounded by flower beds, while a slate terrace bounded by a low brick wall wraps around two sides of the house. A sample of plantings that grace the landscape include specimen trees, rhododendrons, azaleas and irises.
Also on the property is a guest cottage and a 1½-car garage.
