This unique back yard garage/carriage house addition (titled an “Accessory Dwelling Unit” in zoning terms) adds a 490 s.f loft living space above a 700 s.f. garage. Designed with cathedral ceilings and an open floor plan, it includes a kitchen with seating island, living room, bedroom, 3 piece bath and walk-in closet. Large windows and skylights provide ample daylight. The 2 car garage has a workbench area and separate door/stair access to the upper level. A brick veneer base with a stucco-faced upper level make the visual tie to the existing 1930’s bungalow. A covered porch faces the backyard courtyard, providing additional seating for the owner’s adjacent “jazz band stand” – a site of many summer outdoor performances. Construction is scheduled for the fall of 2017.
