About Claudia von Gumppenberg

i grew up in Germany riding my entire life and fell in love with New England and especially Boston s North Shore travelling .

So i combined my love for New England and Passion for Horses and bought a beautiful 1860 historic horse farm in the charming water front town of Essex.

Claudia von Gumppenberg purchased this farmhouse in 2011

Why Claudia von Gumppenberg chose Essex

Surrounded by beauty....a little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

My stay at this amazing and unique farmhouse apartment was just what I needed. You will be inspired and refreshed! The apartment inside and out is breathtaking….feels like you’ve stepped into a magazine! Peaceful and quiet, with lovely sounds of horses and their caretakers. Hostess, interior designer, and horse lover, Claudia, is an amazing inspiration. You can tell that she pours her heart into her farm. This apartment was immaculate and equipped with everything you need. Downtown Essex is just a short walk away with plenty of antique shops and restaurants. If you’re looking for something with loads of charm, this is it! Thank you so much Claudia! I can’t wait to come back.
