About Julie Rose
Hi! Born in New York City, I grew up on the East Coast- primarily on Cape Cod, but spent quite a few years in the Berkshires, as well. I have been living in Los Angeles since 1994. I own a health and fitness business and teach Pilates, Yoga and other forms of exercise. To me, our home in Vermont is the ultimate retreat from traffic and the hustle bustle of everyday life. I am happy to be able to share the unique, restorative experience that this very special space has to offer.
Julie Rose purchased this farmhouse in 1990
Why Julie Rose chose Jamaica
My Father's Dream Home After summering in Jamaica for many years, my father bought and completely renovated the 200 year old farmhouse and retired from his job and life in Manhattan to live the good life in Vermont. An activist for peace, a writer, and practicing Buddhist and Jew, my dad built the yoga/meditation studio which served as a Dharma Center as well as a space for yoga and Tai Chi classes. The honorable Lama Pema Wangdak regularly traveled from New York to teach at the studio, which served as the Palden Sakya Center for Vermont. The summer cabins, an outdoor labyrinth and an outhouse were added to further realize his vision for the property. As you see in the photos, the house contains original paintings and other artwork. My grandfather was an accomplished artist and much of the art in the home is his or that of his contemporaries. There are also some local Vermont artists represented on the walls. My sister and I have tried to preserve and maintain the simple beauty, integrity and artistic as well as spiritual curiosity this property embodies. In the summer, we hold various retreats and celebrations at the house. We love our home, and we're sure you will feel and join in the love on your next get away!
What makes this farmhouse unique
The Sound of Water Running Over Stones! The Master bedroom on the 2nd floor is on the front side of the house. The sight and sound of the babbling brook across the street from the property is calming and promotes restful sleep. The Books! An eclectic and interesting collection, there is always something new to discover. The Barn! It is still, mostly, all original. A garage was added (to keep the car snow free). Someday we'll have chickens in there again. The Studio! All wood, sky lights and windows- it is a place for the body and mind to roam free.
