Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Catherine Ione-Perkins is a brilliant designer of clothing, costume and textiles. Native to California, Catherine holds a Masters Degree in Fine Arts, and she is an award-winning theatrical costume designer. A co-creator of the Casa, Catherine not only does brilliant work with fabric and tile, but she also pursues a passion for re-imagining textiles, clothing and home accessories through her exclusive Flop House brand of products. For more about Catherine, please visit her website at Peter Perkins, a native of New England, is a geologist, teacher, writer and artist. Drawn to the challenge of any task at hand, and finding great satisfaction in a job well done, Peter can be found always on the move at the Casa, roaming the landscape in search of new ways to innovate and create in this peaceful and whimsical place.

Why the Owner Chose Grass Valley, CA, USA:
Ten years ago Peter Perkins and Catherine Ione-Perkins came upon their present day home, the Casa del Campo--a diamond in the rough located at the end of a quiet country lane near Grass Valley, California. Comprised of a main house, a guest house and a variety of out buildings, set on several acres featuring open spaces and old growth forest, the property had the bones of greatness--it just needed some loving and purposeful attention. With the creative inspiration of a brilliant local craftsman, the willingness to learn and innovate, and no small amount of artistic vision on their part, Peter and Catherine undertook the process of transforming the houses and land, room by room, yard by yard, into a unique and exciting testimony to what is possible with sincere good intention. Still a work in progress, the Casa is a vibrant canvas, constantly evolving--a spiritual place of positive energy, a fun and relaxing place to rest and plan each day.
