Step back into a bygone era inside the 130-plus-year-old Victorian-era Carter Mansion dripping in period details. Original materials and finishes delight you inside, from stained glass windows, marble lintels, and intricate woodworking to crystal chandeliers and soaring ceilings, some with coffered beams, others with delicate lacelike ornament. When you need to travel to the second home, access the private underground walkway protecting you from the weathering outdoors. In The Carriage House, vintage flourishes are everywhere, but many modern amenities include a security system, water softener and reverse osmosis system, and an elevator.
