After undergoing a careful restoration, a massive stone carriage house in Newtown Square is on the market for $2,599,900.

The home at 3202 Saint Davids Road is one of the last-remaining structures from the historic 1887 Dunminning Estate. But the stone carriage house, called Hidden Rock, was in a sorry state when the owners purchased it in 1995.

The good news is that the new owners gave the carriage house a dramatic makeover, turning it into a four-bedroom, three and a half bath home, totaling an impressive 8,374 square feet.

“The Court” is the main—and massive—living and entertaining space. It has 30-foot-tall ceilings accented by hundreds of handmade, ceramic ceiling tiles. The concrete floors are heated, too, so no need to worry about staying warm in such a large space.

The big, white kitchen was originally the horse stables, while a two-story atrium was originally a lift, where carriages could be hoisted onto the second floor.
