The property—which is around the corner from historic Charles Street, Beacon Hill’s main shopping area—boasts 2,728 square feet, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a ballroom, and a ton of charm.

Behind that Instagram-worthy baby blue exterior lies even more gorgeous architectural detail: parquet floors, detailed molding, fireplaces, built-in bookcases, and a touch of rustic exposed beams.

If you’ve ever wanted to act on those idyllic, live-above-the-shop fantasies (and have the shortest commute ever), the street level front room is currently an antique shop, with a private apartment on the second floor. If that’s not your speed, the downstairs shop can be converted to additional living space and bedrooms.

This place even has a full basement, something practically unheard of in a city property.

Of course, nearly 3,000 square feet in an old money neighborhood doesn’t come cheap—the carriage house is currently listed for $3.2 million.
