Tudor Magic

House & Garden Nov 2005 Photos by Simon Watson

The most magical of Tudor homes in my opinion. The incredible proportions of the windows cannot be forgotten. (I rediscovered this article by Katrine Ames while unpacking boxes from storage. It was like finding a long lost friend. ) The home was once the Playhouse, a performance space located in East Hampton.

The homeowner resurrected the structure after it remained empty for over 10 years.

A graduate of Julliard the homeowner and pianist put the homes strength of acoustics to good use by hosting performances and teaching master classes in the great hall.

Stairway to heaven connects two bedrooms added on what was once a stage.
Have a magical weekend.

The Ultimate Grocery Getter!

I think the universe is trying to tell me something. LOOK what pulled in next to me in the grocery parking lot tonight! Message received. London is calling. Loudly. Back to blogging tomorrow!

See you then.
