|their old house on Long Island|
They both shared the same dream ~
to leave the city behind and live in a real farmhouse.
In fact, a photo of this home was their screen saver for about three years.
This past February, their dream became reality when they moved into this farm house in Wytheville, Virginia, built in 1860, nestled into a valley of thirty acres, with several out buildings.
Now they enjoy views like this.
Neighboring farm animals have no problem wandering over.
The chickens are new family members.
Plenty of space for them to roam and scratch.
|Talk about an oven stuffer!|
Cock-a-doodle-doo and good mornin' to you! Their rooster
Maureen on her way to collect those fresh eggs!
Country breakfast just took on a whole new meaning. Mmmmmmm
Maureen and David have lots of renovating ideas, the kitchen is their next project.
Fresh baked goods, wonder if David baked the pie? David is a good cook and even churns his own butter. He did that on Long Island. The farm house has no heat or a/c.
Some things are from their old home, some things are recent purchases from auctions near their new home
Original 1860 floors
|Looks like a heart?|
Maybe Maureen will take up knitting........
Look at this old door
And here is David, holding their first grape harvest
Maybe David and Maureen will become vintners? Maur Wine Vineyards? Nice looking grapes
Nice grapes leaves to stuff

They recently renovated their bathroom
It turned out great
In case of emergencies
They do have one of these 'out' buildings. No phone inside, but a real commode
Now this drastic a lifestyle change is not for everyone, and I give them credit for keeping their dream alive, and taking that giant leap of faith to see it come to fruition.
Welcome home, Maureen and David. Thanks for letting me share your story and your new home.
Thanks to Kathy for sending me photos, in addition to Maureen's photos.
Hope you enjoyed the tour.
