This incredible carriage house is on nearly half an acre in the most idyllic Cottage Farm setting abutting Halls Pond and with direct access to Amory Park. The house is extremely private and light-filled on all four sides and has floor-to-ceiling windows on three sides which face conservation land and the property. The first floor features dramatically high ceilings with spacious rooms for relaxing and entertaining. The second floor has three bedrooms including the primary bedroom. The grounds are landscaped and spectacular and are truly a gardener's paradise. 178 Ivy Street is at the end of a short private road with room for parking several cars. One feels as though they are tucked away in the woods, but within a stone's throw to everything that Brookline, Boston and Cambridge have to offer.
