Is this Pacific Street home a unicorn? The listing’s brokerbabble seems to think so. Built in 1840, this “rare and mythical” former carriage and fire house is “what real estate dreams are made of.” The 25-foot-wide by 85-foot-deep three-story home is currently configured as two units, but can be combined to be a four- to six-bedroom single-family dwelling. The home’s layout skirts the “inconvenience of vertical townhouse living” with its 2,125-square-foot main floor, which has double-height ceilings, big skylights, and an impressively large fireplace. The brokerbabble goes on: “Add to that the drama of massive exposed wood beams, arched windows, a charming greenhouse, a perennial garden … 12-inch-wide wood-plank floors … a terrace off the second floor … and you have a one-of-kind property with the warmth and grandeur only found in historical homes, but the open layout of more modern living.” Unlike a unicorn, this carriage house can be bought for $7.995 million.
