HISTORY
The carriage house origins, date late 1700, originally it used to be a stable and a carriage rest place where horses would be fed and horse shoes repaired. The farrier, would care for the horses, including the trimming and balancing of horses' hooves and the placing of shoes on their hooves. There used to be a large oven where iron could be cast and horse shoes adapted. And the tradition and passion for cast iron stayed in my family since. Positioned on the original path the connected Major Lake with Varese Lake, The carriage house was the rest place half way between the 2 lakes. The property was purchesed by my grand grand parents in the late 1800, when the area was developed, the railways station built and the first electric tram built to replace the horse pulled tram that exited up until that time. In 1914, just before the first world war, the carriage house was transformed into a residential property where my great grandparents were living and in 1957 the ground floor was turned into a retail shop, at that time selling haberdasheries which was my family business for generations
