Leigh Hay-Martin has owned the Blue Moon Cottage for over 25 years. This was the first house she ever bought and lived in for many years before she married Richard Martin. Leigh signed the escrow papers for ownership on a Blue Moon, hence, The Blue Moon Cottage.
There was a ghost when Leigh moved in named Marcelena . Marcelena lived in the house for over 65 years before Leigh purchased the house,she loved the little house and her life in Jerome.She passed away and the house was put up for sale. Leigh bought the house and moved in, but found Marcelena was still there !!! Leigh says 'She loved our little house and was a easy house mate except if you moved her chair from her favorite spot (a sunny spot by a window in the back of the house, now the master bedroom) If you moved her chair, she rearranged and moved certain things around the house. This tended to make one a little crazy but what are roommates for anyway?
When the house was renovated, Marcelena moved on.
The house was renovated about twelve years ago. By adding a foundation the house the house became a two story cottage and the ground floor became Leigh's art studio. Wifi has been added to the cottage and is complementary. As a lover of all things fabric, Leigh's passion for textile has made her a master quilter and designer. Leigh is also the owner of Designs On You, a retail clothing store in Jerome, Arizona.
