This week I shared two of the three homes in the 1995 remake of the 1954 classic movie, Sabrina. We toured Salutation House, a grand mansion located in Glen Cove on Long Island in this post: Sabrina: Tour the Beautiful Glen Cove Estate in the Movie
We also visited an adorable Menemsha Cottage on Martha’s Vineyard in this post: Sabrina: Tour the Waterfront Cottage on Martha’s Vineyard
There’s only one home we haven’t toured and though not grand or fancy, it was one of my faves in the movie. I loved the smallish apartment where Sabrina and her father live. Sabrina’s dad, Thomas Fairchild is the Larrabee’s chauffeur in this romantic comedy.
If you love vintage or antique cars (raising my hand high) you’ll enjoy the beautiful cars in this movie, too.
Let’s check out this adorable garage apartment. It’s even cute from the outside, isn’t it?
Sabrina’s dad is a huge bibliophile. The garage apartment is charming but I found it even more charming and cozy with all the stacks and stacks of books everywhere.
There’s no such thing as having too many books, right?
This is the view facing back toward the door. The plaid draperies, dutch door and umbrella stand just add to this apartment’s cottage charm. I love how the pictures/paintings are hung low in some spots.
Sabrina’s dad isn’t married in the movie but that changes toward the end. The apartment could definitely use a woman’s touch, and maybe a few extra bookshelves.
Note the board and batten wainscoting, shutters, cute wallpaper and of course, all the books. Don’t you love this cozy apartment?
We don’t get to see the kitchen but I’m wondering if it’s on the other side of the double-hung shutter panels.
We only get a few views of Sabrina’s bedroom. The wainscoting above her bed almost creates a second headboard for her iron bed. The scene shows Sabrina in her pre-Paris days.
She looks very different when she returns, having lived on her own for two years in Paris. Her garage apartment room also has tons of cottage charm. Anyone know the name of that style chair…the one over in the corner behind Sabrina’s dad? It’s on the tip of my tongue but I can’t remember it. Update: Thanks Cathie for reminding us…it’s called a “butterfly” chair. Looks like a butterfly, doesn’t it?
One final view of Sabrina’s bedroom.
So rare to see a movie with three great homes, but this movie had them all. There was the grand Glen Cove mansion, the charming beach cottage on Martha’s Vineyard and this cozy cottage garage apartment filled with one of my favorite things…books!
Hope you enjoyed touring these three homes. You’ll find them under the Home Tours/Movie House Tours section here at BNOTP in the future.
