Second floor loft apartment with screened porch. Bright sunny western exposure. Living room, bedroom, bath, charming kitchen. Washer/dryer. Delightfully furnished. Private garage. Compact and well designed. Lower foyer, upper foyer . . . and a porch swing.

This unique loft apartment is fully furnished and ready for guests. Central location makes it a quick walk to downtown and 4th Street businesses. It is in an authentic old carriage house. The unit is packed with character and charm. Sunny screened porch. Private garage below.

There are two loft apartments in this barn-like structure. This one is on the right as you come up the steps . . . Gene’s Loft West. The other one (identical in size and layout) is on the left. . . Gene’s Loft East. They are private, separated by stairs and a foyer.

Park in the garage and enter the first floor foyer. Lofts are on the second floor which is decked out with whimsical old prints, books . . . and a porch swing. Flower boxes hang off the screened porch.

The lofts are 500 square feet including porch. Bigger than most hotel rooms. Living room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. Well designed to maximize space and light. Everyone says they look bigger.

New 40" smart TV rotates to watch from many angles. Teal French doors separate living room from bedroom and give added privacy.

Lots of windows on the west side capture late evening sun. Look through slatted shutters to the grassy lot below. Great place to walk a dog.

New queen size bed has a pillow top mattress. Beach watercolor over bed coordinates with the multicolor pinstripe duvet on the bed. Lots of pillows.

It is a short hop from the bedroom to the bathroom. Behind the paisley shower curtain sits the original claw foot tub (with shower). Old medicine cabinet is from another era. Above is a double school house light fixture for maximum illumination. We added a few extra wire baskets for storage.

White towels are packed in a nearby shabby chic style cabinet. Washer/dryer sits behind multi-panel faux finished doors. Larger closet in living room makes the perfect wardrobe.

Breakfast table is just off the kitchen with additional eating area on the screen porch. Glider makes a relaxing spot for a glass of wine at dusk. And an old leaded glass door adds extra class.

Kitchen is functional and bright. Under counter lighting and ceiling fan add to the ambiance. Yellow knobs give an extra whimsical touch. Kitchen is complete with range, microwave, refrigerator and even a dishwasher. White square tile on the kitchen counters is trimmed with oak. Herringbone subway pattern on wall. Farmhouse sink is the real thing. Shabby chic cupboard over head. Wine glasses hang from holders to give maximum storage for dishes. Fold down butcher block cutting board.

Small mahogany door with bamboo shade is from the captain’s quarters off an old ship. The captain carved his name on the door. Not what you would expect!

This is a fun retreat for two people. A little quirky . . . but with everything you need. Plus, it puts you right in town.
