Year Purchased: 1994
About the owner: Photo: Linda & visiting bull moose calf. I (Jim) & my wife, Linda were born in 1953 in Lynn & Westfield, Massachusetts. I graduated from U. Mass. (Amherst) with a BA in Early Christian Theology (Latin & Greek) and Linda graduated 1st in her class from Paier Art School in Hamden, CT. We married in 1979 and have raised 5 children. We enjoy our private, wooded location, do lots of gardening and keep chickens. We are spiritually minded (Catholics). We have always done things the simple, home way--home birth, home school, etc. We bake our own bread and raise as much of our own food as we can.
Why the Owner Chose Westfield:
After a kidney transplant gave me (Jim) a new lease on life in 1992, our family decided to move to the woods near Jay Peak to be close to nature and as independent as possible. We are the only residence on a 1.5 mile long road. Nature abounds here. Once a bull moose calf visited our garden for weeks.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We bought these 21 wooded acres for privacy, peace, quiet and independence. We built our home and the neighboring 'Carmel Cottage' from scratch. Now that our 5 children have grown up and are raising their own families, we are still developing, having just completed renovating the top storey of our house into our second vacation rental, 'Carmel Loft.'
