It ‘s been over 7 years since I sold my “dream” house and property and moved on to finding and following my new dreams.
I currently live in a small, but oh, so special, home, in Litchfield County, but I will always have loving memories of “Roundfield” (first chapter in my book, Love Where you Live). I have been able to keep in touch with the new owners because (surprise, surprise) they shop at Hammertown 🙂
So…you can imagine how delighted I was to be invited back a few weeks ago on a beautiful summer night. I knew it might feel strange to go back to my “old” home, but I was ready and at a good point in my life to return to Roundfield for a visit. And, I’m so glad I did.
I was thrilled to see the new owners clearly love this property as much as I did and have brought the same respect to the property and the home. It is a simple, classic (yet modern) farmhouse, incredibly designed by architect Elizabeth Demetriades (Demetriades+Walker).
The new owners have maintained the original respect for the land and home that was intended. The land and the setting itself are the “stars” of this property and the home is its heart, providing a joyful and livable space for family and friends.
My biggest compliment to Roundfield and its new owners is that…to me…I really felt like I was going back Home. I settled in and enjoyed the evening with these new friends. I felt the familiar joy and love and serenity from the property, and I was genuinely happy to be back.
I have to say, I couldn’t have asked for better owners to pass a property on to. This magical place that brought so much love and joy to me and my family is now inhabited by a family who truly cherishes it as much as my family and I did.
