Under Contract: Turn-of-the-Century Homes Turn Over in Under Two Weeks: Figure 1

Frozen in Time, a Georgetown Carriage House

This West Village carriage house packs plenty of alley-curb appeal, boasting an ivy-covered facade with decorative barn doors that looks frozen in time. The interior, however, is more current and takes advantage of every square foot of its two stories. The open floorplan on the main level maximizes the living space alongside a kitchen nook and also provides access to a private outdoor patio. The skylit upstairs landing doubles as the master bedroom. The home found a buyer about a week and a half after hitting the market.

Restored Rowhouse Sells in Five Days

Over in Lincoln Park, this Victorian rowhouse found a buyer in under a week. The seller is an architect whose renovation of the house mixes historic preservation with modern conveniences. Restored finishes include decorative wood columns, pocket doors and built-ins throughout the main floor, including a carved hall tree and a bar with leaded glass doors. By contrast, the kitchen has a more contemporary feel, with subway-tiled walls and butcher’s block countertops.
