Born and raised in NYC, I have forever dreamed of a country house to escape the City. I spent my 20s living and working in communications in Europe and fell in love with the agriturismos, or farm stays, in the countryside. Spending quality time at Italian villas, French chateaus, and English country manors with friends and family was my idea of perfection. Mornings spent outside sipping coffee watching the sunrise, afternoons hiking, reading books, and going to nearby lakes, and evenings enjoying long meals al fresco with great wine and conversation with loved ones. What else could you want?
I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area about 8 years ago. After life threw me for a loop two years ago, I was able to find hope and refuge for me and my two amazing daugters, Klarabelle + Lulu (and our very fluffy golden retriever, Sebastian) in Sunrise Ranch. I discovered the property one year ago on a trip up to Bend, Oregon, and spent the next year renovating the farmhouse to create my dream property - a combination of an East Coast country house with a modern, luxury farmhouse sensibility and easy California style.
After years as the CEO and Founder of Stellina Events, a New York Magazine top rated Wedding Planning + Design Consultancy, and lots of personal time redesigning my own apartments and house, I threw all my love and care into creating the perfect space for families to relax (endless space for children to run outdoors!), for anyone looking to find their own joy and inner peace, and the perfect estate for celebrations.
