Elegance instilled in architectural history.
This incredible carriage house built in 1884 was originally a brick building built as a stable for a house up the Hill. There was an iron beam for hoisting hay to the second floor.
Israel Sack, a famous antique dealer moved into the house in 1922 adding wide board flooring (some 33” wide), paneling, cupboards and bull’s eye glass which he retrieved from the Hooper Mansion in Marblehead.
The front wooden elevation of the house now covering the original brick came from a building in Salem, Massachusetts and was added in the 20’s.
Years later Louis Prince renovated the upstairs and ran an antique business on the first floor. Similarly, the current owner has lived in the house and run a successful antique business for many years. This house lends itself to entertaining and many elegant parties have been held here.
