|Bringing Back Holleywood||
A few weeks ago, Donald was working by the wood stove in the kitchen when he heard a tremendous crash. He looked out to see that an old spruce in our backyard had fallen over, for no apparent reason. We were glad to have already taken down trees near the house. Spruce isn't good firewood, so Larry will chop it and give it to a guy who taps spruce for sap.

We were awed by stunning transformations made possible by Kyle and Lindsey's vision and hard work. We are grateful to them, and their handy friends and relatives, too. Thanks to Lindsey for these wonderful shots that artfully capture the distance from beginning to end of their journey. We hope they'll be very happy in their new home.
who we are
We are a couple of Upper West Siders from NYC who never set out to buy an old mansion in Connecticut. But the moment we walked through its massive front door, we were smitten. The info on this site is earnestly cobbled from a variety of sources, including the web. Please let us know if we've gotten something wrong, or if there's a story about Holleywood you'd like to share.
