A Love Affair with Antiques, a Family Estate, and Four Generations
I am passionate about my family and our history and have had the great pleasure of seeing life move from one generation to the next, with all that it encompasses. I have a deep love of antiques and I long to hear the stories that old furnishings hold, buried within. With these passions in mind, I created Le Barn; a one-of-a-kind antique lovers dream nestled within our family estate in North Stamford, Connecticut. Now, heirloom furnishings, rustic décor, and charming accent pieces can easily and conveniently be yours!
We all know that many antique houses have been lived in for generations. How many times have we wished that the walls could talk? What would they teach us about the past? What was discussed at a typical meal at the family table? Is it possible that families discussed some of the same things back then as we discuss today? The richness of life and age add ambience, mystery, and character to any home, thereby infusing it with a family’s unique history. The same is true of furniture passed from one generation to the next. Your own particular family’s stories become part of the history of each piece.
Similarly, I feel great joy when caring for our property, which has been in the family for almost 100 years. This property began as a working cow farm in the 1700’s. The original dry stonewalls enclosed pastures with wide-open meadows that were cleared by hand. As I plan for the fourth generation to live here, I eagerly plant trees and gingerly maintain the landscape for their future. It is my personal labor of love. Our grandchildren will one day enjoy the shade of the beech trees in the heat of summer, the brilliant reds and yellows of the maple trees in the fall, and the special stand of aspen trees I have started from seedlings.
There is so much more to discover at Le Barn than simply antiques. Le Barn is a cherished family landmark complete with lush gardens, bright green fields, and an abundance of unexpected wild life. And when you are done exploring the property, I will be here to help you sort through two large restored barns filled with treasures collected from around the world. You are certain to find exceptional items that will occupy a special place in your own precious home and heart.
An encounter with the historic past, hope and promise for the future; nature, land, gardens, and a wealth of superb antiques is what waits for you at Le Barn. From my home to yours, we love to share our history and ideas while helping to make your house your very own paradise.
