The best of both worlds for car enthusiasts or even for those who want the perk of flying with the convenience of having wheels once they arrive is finding a home with a carriage house.

Today, carriage houses have a bit more romantic appeal, serving as additional guest accommodations, workshops, offices or even separate homes apart from the main abode. The even better news, for those of us in Destin and along Scenic Highway 30A, is that they can accommodate storage for one, two or more vehicles. Here are a few carriage houses to rev the engines of car enthusiasts or those who simply want to stash a vehicle at the beach.
