When asked to describe the story of their time as stewards of the old Blue Ridge Farm and what has been most gratifying about their time there, John and Celia run through a flash of memory images, going back and forth through years of ownership, until they settle on the idea of bringing her back to life.
and the smell of sawn wood;
the sun coming up over the fields;
the woosh of the tree swing;
the feel of the right stone;
the kids fishing in the pond
and the twinkle-toe of wedding lights in the barn.
“We were hooked from our first look,” says John. “This vista is more than 100 years in the making….it’s hard to express the feelings I have of being able to be a part of restoring pieces of it and making our mark here,” he says looking off into the distance past the porch, through the farm, and into the fields.
From each corner and every building, it is clear pride moved in with John and Celia and it has been growing along with them since that time through the farmhouse and log cabin restorations, the corn-crib, and bank barn projects and the new garage and in-law apartment construction.
“We purchased this house for just the two of us“, says Ceclia, “but within a short time, John had so many projects going, it seemed the contractors and mason had moved in, too.”
“Only the mason”, adds John, “and only for four or five years,” he winks.
Your best life begins with passion and a vista that inspires.
