This was no easy decision. Actually it was a really, really tough one…something I kept turning away from and putting off for over a year now. My sweet and beautiful beloved muse, my Connecticut country house, is now listed for sale.
I stepped foot into this wonderful old house 17 years ago, and instantly fell in love with it. The rich history, beautiful location, and the light, bright welcoming spaces of this 1767 house blew me away! About 6 months later, it was unbelievably ours! We’ve put so much into this home to make it the best it can be. And it surely has been. But the time has come to downsize, and enjoy more of what life has to offer. Murph’s going to retire from teaching later this year, and our recent college grad, Conor, is just embarking on his career. Me, well I absolutely LOVE sharing my Country House style (especially my Hunt Club!) and will carry on in a new old country house I have my eye on. (Plenty of projects await!)
Murph, Conor and I have cared for and love this wonderful home – its been a fabulous home to us, as well as our dear family and friends.
I pray for that 1 person, couple, or family to come and instantly fall in love with this beautiful place, just like I did 17 years ago, and call it home.
Here’s to the next fabulous chapter!
