Taking up approx. a third of the block ( 3946 sqft**) on .32 acres in Ottawa's historic east side, this is the carriage house for the Washington Bushnell mansion. According to the east side survey* the Italianate style carriage house was built in 1868-1872. Looking at the property you can get a glimps of what the life was like in that era. The front two larger units that have big open rooms, high ceilings and arch way details were the servants quarters. Upstairs has a screened in balcony. Downstairs has full length front porch. The back two units are smaller. The upstairs smaller 2 bedroom was once part of the exterior that had been enclosed and has exterior corbels and a cute little window between the living room and the kitchen. The back small unit takes up two of what was originally the bays were the carriages were kept. The other 3 bays are now currently two single garage bays and a utility room. There is a two level loft that could also be finished to either be storage or an additional unit. The L shaped part of the yard used to have a stable that has long since been torn down. Every window has a view of either the river, the mansions in the neighborhood or the yard. Currently 2 of the 4 units are rented so there is instant income. The other 2 units should be rented soon.
