Historic, spacious and private come to mind at the Paxhurst Carriage House, an original Tudor carriage house, stable, greenhouse and ice house property in 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, 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. The cathedral main bedroom with sitting area and en-suite bath has its own staircase to a large loft-style studio/office, creating a multi-room private main wing. There's a separate entrance to he house with mudroom and direct access to the second floor. An additional powder room complete this sun filled main level. 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.
