Making Middleburg

One thing about my Husband. He rolls elegantly.



These are my first sights of my new home in Middleburg, Virginia - though still a New Yorker at the center of my bone, it is magnificent.



The last time I stood in Middleburg, I was a junior rider here for the horse show. I am so pleased very little changes here.



Makes our move to DC familiar and safe.



Anyway, this is the kitchen: Through the back door. This entire portion of the structure is windows. Behind me here is the family room. Beautiful for the views. but did I tell you how many wall decor pieces came with us and how little storage they will have now? First problem...




The hunt room. I have not hung the drapes yet and the armoire was on its way to the family room. did you notice there are no moving boxes? Furniture relocation not withstanding, this whole place was unpacked when the girls and arrived. That is dedication.



Dinner: On the table when we pulled in. Could have been mutton for all I cared. It was a fabulous gesture. A lovely welcome. We had left Jax behind that morning and been sort of in the wind for four days while things were moved and unpacked. I was ready to be finished with the process.



Welcome to Middleburg, Darlings. This will be a predictably beautiful ride.

oh hooray! it looks idyllic. The Hunt room (like that) will be a perfect Hunt room when the curtains go up- Done & Done. Well done! G

Your home is lovely and reminds me of a story book house. It's charming.

What a gorgeous house in my dream town! I think I might hate you a little. Now find a way to start riding again, and I'll really hate you.

BTW - I've discovered dressage lessons (even though it's on school horses) is an almost guilt-free way to rid yourself of the domesticity blues. I miss jumping, but I feel better having four feet on the ground for my kids' sake. Plus it's great for the traumatized midsection! I think I have abs again.

I am so excited to see more images of your beautiful new home!!

Is that thing with a tail in the hunt room a foot stool? Heavy covet on the kitchen. What I would give for a proper kitchen.
