Have you always wanted to peek inside the North Cottage? If so, now is your chance! On Sunday, October 16, a limited number of lucky individuals will enjoy a sumptuous catered brunch in the cottage. The cottage is only open by appointment or for special events—and this is definitely a special event!
In addition to enjoying the lovely brunch, you will have the opportunity to mingle with other like minded-souls who appreciate the simple beauty of the Craftsman bungalow style. Wander through at your own pace exploring one of the first structures built at Craftsman Farms. Enjoy the charming furnishings, including the Wiley collection. This grouping of nine period pieces was donated by Stephen Wiley in 2009 and includes Stickley settle #208, Stickley Morris chair #369; Stickley stool #300; Stickley library table #615; Stickley bookcase #718; two Stickley 1/2 v-back arm chairs #354; an L&JG table #599; and an L&JG table #558.
The cottage has recently undergone an interior refurbishment as well as a complete restoration of the red slate roof, copper gutters and downspouts, rafter tails, and reinstallation of the original Ludowici roof ridge tiles. Fundraising is now underway to restore the original windows, which are currently stored for their protection.
Due to the need to protect the cottage from wear and tear, only a limited number of tickets are available.
