The Studio

My husband’s family purchased this home in 1947. We bought it from them in 1983 when we got married.  There are many things I love about this 1870s house. One is how it’s set back about 450 feet off of the main road, giving it an air of privacy, especially when the house disappears behind the veil of leaves.  Visitors to Maple Brook often comment about an overall feeling of comfort and calm…, a good energy space.   

Bill and his Dad built the addition in the early 1960s as an in-law apartment for Bill’s maternal grandparents. We turned the space into my studio in 1991. As I walk from the main house into the studio, I often feel as if I am walking into a special space where creativity thrives.
