Fairytale Cottage in France

The New York Times 2.18.09

This leaning French home featured in The New York Times dates to the 12th-century — and it gives us the willies! Looking like a witch's chateau, the house is in Louviers, France (about 60 miles north of Paris) and is the home of chef and food writer Susan Herrmann Loomis... The home is 3,800 square feet of living space and was a convent for 300 years. Loomis has modernized the kitchen and writes her books in one of the seven bedrooms (converted to an office).
