When a carriage house transforms into a home


Imagine owning your dream house, a converted and totally renovated carriage house built in the 1800s just 10 miles from Midtown.

That’s exactly the home you’ll find at 5450 Palisade Ave., in the heart of Riverdale Estates.

Here you’ll find a spectacular four-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom home nestled on a half-acre lot with more than 5,000 square feet of space at your disposal — including a two-car garage and a gym.

Experience this unique home where the foyer brings you into the grand living room flooded with eastern light with lofty 19-foot ceilings.

There’s also a grand wood-burning fireplace, and a formal dining room.

Separating the living and dining rooms are two double-carriage doors that open to the outdoor patio overlooking beautifully maintained landscaping and a garden, all to experience indoor-outdoor living at its best.

An oversized windowed eat-in kitchen with a large center island offers granite counter tops with a commercial-grade six-burner stove, sub-zero refrigerator, and two dishwashers.

A den off the living room offers plenty of space for an office, guest bedroom, or just simply to entertain.

The second level offers the main bedroom suite with a walk-in closet, with an expanded en-suite windowed bath with double sinks, large soaking tub and a custom shower.

Three additional large bedrooms and the two bathrooms — one en-suite — allow a chance to bask in skylight-provided sunshine.

There is beautiful hardwood flooring throughout the house.

The driveway accommodates seven or more vehicles, and a three-car garage — one of which has been converted to the home gym. There is a Sonos entertainment system wired for indoor and outdoor use.

So what are you waiting for? Make your home in the exclusive Riverdale Estates today for just $2.995 million.
