Carey School Penthouse

Posted on Thu, 23 Jun 2016 by KiM

Becky of Libby Kirwin Real Estate sent over some photos of this fantastic penthouse condo in Newport, Rhode Island. Libby worked with an investor to transform a dilapidated neighbourhood elementary school into a 13-unit condominium building, which sold out pretty quickly and I can see why! With exposed brick and beams and lots of ceiling angles for added architectural interest, this is a dream! And those hardwood floors are gorgeous but I can’t believe the stagers covered it up with so many large rugs. Other than that I am in love. 

Colleen says:

Where can I find those bars stools?

Jared Hayden says:

I'm on the tall side, so ceiling height is a concern. I'd be worried about bonking my head every time I stood up in that place.

axie says:

My thoughts exactly, Jared! But it is a lovely home- I especially like the kitchen.

Jared Hayden says:

Karate chop pillow alert!

d of dogland says:

It must be one of those buildings that requires a certain percentage of the floors to be carpeted. I've seen some buildings where 80 -90 % of the floors must be covered to reduce noise and vibration transfer.
It certainly wasn't done for aesthetics. All but the hall entry rug are pretty generic.

Emily Rodriguez says:

Oh my, what a fabulous penthouse! I love the different ceiling angles and exposed brick. It's definitely the vibe I’d like to incorporate on my house. I'm totally stealing some ideas! Thanks so much for sharing the pictures!
