Dilworth Garage & Upstairs Suite

This fantastic garage was built in the Dilworth Historic District. Our homeowners had a dream to turn their carport area into a functional garage with guest quarters above.

This is where we started. The carport, slab and a section of the driveway were removed to build the new garage. Several historic review boards convened and we walked through the process to get our client the space they desired.

Let’s take a tour of the new guest suite atop the garage.

At the top of the stairs is the bathroom. The dark gray maple cabinetry and polished quartz used throughout, tie the kitchenette and bathroom together along the back wall of the guesthouse.

Fixtures in brushed nickel, and hardware in ash gray, enhance the soft tones of the space.  A rectangular sink works with the angular lines and the three drawers provide storage for guests.

The GE Top Freezer Refrigerator and GE Profile Series Dishwasher, both in slate, make this kitchenette a stand-out. It’s as if, the cabinetry and appliances were made for each other! Having the refrigerator, microwave and dishwasher in this space provide the convenience needed when guests stay-over or a party is hosted for the children.

You can’t forget the closet! A spacious walk-in closet is included.

The room can be configured in many different ways as the family’s needs change.

The dormers add character to both the indoor and outdoor spaces. Light floods the room making the space feel warm and welcoming.

Let’s finish the tour by taking a look outdoors one more time.

The dormers from the outside hint at something special upstairs.

The carport is gone and in it’s place is a stunning garage and suite that blends right into the historic homes in the neighborhood.
