About Diana Brown
My husband and I have a love for the architecture of older structures including old Victorian properties. We acquired both 558 (Glass Gable North) and 560 (Glass Gable South) south Hanover Street in the spring of 2000. At the time my husband was serving on active duty in the Navy and he had been assigned to work at the Naval Support Activity, Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. We first discovered 560 South Hanover Street when we were looking to purchase a home. We immediately saw a lot of potential for 560. After getting 560 under contract for purchase, the owner of 560 also offered to sell us the adjoining property, 558 South Hanover Street. Within a 30 day period we had acquired both properties and we starting working on remodeling both properties. We lived in 560 until 2004 when we moved into the Carriage House which we had just completely remodeled on the rear of the 560 property. We still live in the Carriage House today. We started renting out 560 in 2008 and by that time we had starting referring to the property as the Glass Gable, based on the glass that was installed on the front gable that adorns both 558 and 560 South Hanover Street. We love meeting people and when the opportunity arises enjoy spending time getting to know our guests.

Great place to stay!
The "Glass Gable" is in a great location and was exactly as described. The owner was very nice to deal with and was incredibly fast as responding to any questions we had.
Charming historic home near downtown Carlisle!
We were in town for a wedding at the Allenbery Resort and stayed for 3 nights at the Glass Gable. It is a lovely apartment on the upper 2 floors. There are lots of stairs, so it would be difficult if anyone had mobility challenges. It was very well appointed, comfortable and clean. Our kids loved the small rooms upstairs. We would definitely stay here again!
Thank you for your kind comments. We would love to have you again.
The glass gable house was terrific for our shopping trip to Pennsylvania.
The apartment was lovely, comfortable, and clean. Diana was extremely responsive and made sure our arrival went well.
