Historic, spacious and private come to mind at the Paxhurst Carriage House, an original Tudor carriage house, stable, greenhouse and ice house property in the gated community of Tuxedo Park.
Built as part of the 1910 Hoffman Castle, it was designed by renowned NY architects Barney & Chapman. The home is over 5,200 sq. ft plus the huge open-covered horse walk, full basement, wood-paneled open porch, and 2 + acres of rolling lawn, original stone walls and outlying stone pumping house, root cellar and slate floored greenhouse, now a patio.
The oversized living room is flanked by two sets of double French doors and iron balcony railings, bringing in the sunshine and woodland gardens. The south-facing dining room also opens to the garden with French doors. The original hard rock maple flooring throughout once housed six full-sized carriages. A wood-paneled library makes a perfect home office, tv room or cozy library. The south facing kitchen has a large walk-in pantry. The cathedral master bedroom with sitting area and en-suite bath has its own staircase to a large loft-style studio/office, creating a multi-room, private, master wing. There’s a separate entrance to the house with mudroom and direct access to the second floor. An additional powder room complete this sun filled main level.
The primary staircase leads to 4 bedrooms and a 2 room bedroom suite, a whimsical children’s playroom, full bath, laundry room and access to the loft office above the master bedroom.
With walkout access and three sets of windows, this large, open space is perfect for a studio, game room, media room or play area. Two separate rooms house storage, a separate mechanicals room and the original coal shute room is a perfect wine cellar.
The 60’x30’ porch has vaulted ceilings, stone walls and opens to the garden on three sides. There is a stage for performances, seats over 50 for dinner and is perfect for watching outdoor movies. There’s room for ping pong, games, play area, bikes, pets, covered parking and a lounge. The attached patio floats over the property, has wooden floors and railings, and a stairway to the lower garden.
