Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: I am a Jack of all trades Master of All who came to this country as a student Ions ago. Originally an actress I segwayed into a couple of different carreers, but am now back to acting, writing and directing. Travelling a lot because of work I am open to share my little Shangri La with you!

Why the Owner Chose Easton, CT, USA:
I fell in love with this property because of the sense of history and warmth it excudes. I saw it the first time a late afternoon in November in pouring rain and knew the minute I walked in that my search was over. The very important aspect was the proximity to Manhattan where I was working at the time. I loved that I could walk out w/my coffee in my nightgown and in one hour and fifteen min be at my desk in Bloomingdale's advertizing!

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
The Aspetuck Corners was a gathering place for artists and intellectuals back in the twenties and Louis Pfeiffer (a wealthy industrialist from the city) who owned most of the properties at the time, restored and beautified the whole area. Hemingway who was married to his niece Pauline Pfeiffer (his second wife), is supposed to have finished 'A Farewell to Arms' in this house. We are ten minutes from serious shopping and beaches in Westport as well as in Fairfield and there are public golf courses everywhere.
