Last October we put the spotlight on five houses ideal for those who work from home. Even better, they were vintage homes with a charm all their own, and came in styles ranging from studio to carriage house. This Germantown property, which has since gotten a $50k price cut,  is one of them.

A carriage house built in 1869, the home is a mix of history and convenience (and isn’t too shabby looking). Inside, the first floor features 9-foot ceilings and cement floors, and is a 1,500-square-foot work space with office, guest room, laundry, and storage. There’s also a wood stove and bathroom.

Wood floors, bead board paneling, and built-in cabinetry take over the upstairs where the “living” part of the home includes a bedroom sleeping loft and vaulted ceiling.  Outside, a 125-foot drive-way offers private parking and leads to sizable yard with trees, plantings, and antique fountain pool surround.

Baths: 1 full, 1 half
Square feet: 2,369
Price: $199,000
