OWNING A CARRIAGE HOUSE AT THE BEACH

Just in case you are not familiar with the term “carriage house”, here is the definition: A carriage house was the living area above the place where the buggies were stored, that typically provided housing for those serving the estate or homeowner.

Obviously, today’s carriage house takes on a whole new meaning, particularly those found along 30A. A true carriage house that is independent from the main home is a great benefit for 30A homeowners. The carriage home can act as a completely separate living area for family, guests, or renters. This living area enables owners to occupy their main home while using the carriage home as a source of rental income. Or, if you are using your home as a vacation rental, you can keep the carriage for your own use. In many cases, both the main home and the carriage can be rented at the same time or independently, creating two sources of rental income.

A great example of the ideal carriage home can be seen by viewing our newest listing in Watersound West Beach at 47 Sextant Lane. This home offers just under 3400 square feet of living area with 5 bedrooms, 5.5 baths, plus built-in bunks. It is perfect for a large family and a great house to maximize rental income by renting either the carriage, main house, or both.
