I'm a filmmaker, writer and teacher. My home is filled with books and art and natural light. I love greenery and the sounds of birds. If you're like-minded you'll love living here. It's a home, not a guest house because I live here myself from time to time. Need that cheese grater? We have one! Only like your coffee in an italian stovetop espresso? It's there.
