This early 19th century Victorian charmer is one of my absolutely favorite homes lined along Fairfield's quintessential Old Post Road. It's St. Paul's Episcopal Church rectory and located a stone's throw from my parents. While I was home in August, I noticed extensive renovation work happening on the exterior & interior. So happy to learn that the design overhaul was prompted by the decision to create this home into a premiere showhouse, fittingly titled Designer Showhouse on the Green. Ticket sales benefit twofold -- the rectory is receiving long overdue repairs & restoration work and proceeds are going to the local non-profit Operation Hope.
In addition to 15 of the area's top design talents responsible for each room's design, design chairman of the Designer Showhouse on the Green is Ellie Cullman, founder of the highly acclaimed interior design firm Cullman & Kravis. Connecticut Cottages & Gardens is featuring the Showhouse in their October issue, and it's now OPEN through October 25th -- ticket info here.
