As I browsed the listing of another writer's picturesque home, I couldn't help but wonder, was I dreaming of a new home or a new me? Would the saltwater pool cleanse me of all the bad dates, the broken hearts, the nights of too many cocktails and too few dreams come true? What are we really looking for when we look for a new home, a new mate, new shoes? When it comes to the house hunt, are we our own prey?
Candace Bushnell, best known for writing Sex and The City, has put her Connecticut home on the market. The home, built in 1890, is full of Victorian charm. The three bedroom, one and a half bath home is situated on three acres in a town with a pretty impressive artistic pedigree (Alexander Calder and Arthur Miller lived in the area).
The home features hardwood floors, wood burning fireplaces and various wallpaper patterns and super cozy built in bookshelves and window seats.The grounds of the home are impeccably landscaped and include a saltwater pool and rose garden. Situated behind the main house is a two car garage with an 800 square foot guest apartment on the second floor.
Listing agent Maria Taylor told the News Times that the home helped Bushnell with her craft: "she always has her computer out, she's always writing. It's always an inspiration for her." So if you're on the market for a cute little home that might help you launch a successful column-turned hit series-turned two and definitely not three movies, this may be the house for you.
