In a Hudson Valley, a Home With Centuries’ Worth of Stories

July 3, 2018 - table lamp

Most of a time, Jeffrey Doornbos and Caroline Diani live in a breezy, low-slung 1950s residence in Santa Barbara, Calif. So when they began looking for a second home on a East Coast, they wanted something wholly opposite — a creaky mill farmhouse with a pithy clarity of history.

Ms. Diani, 44, an interior engineer and owners of a Santa Barbara stores Diani Shoes and Diani Living, grew adult in a mill farmhouse in England and wanted something that offering a attract and anniversary changes she gifted as a child.

Mr. Doornbos, 50, an actor and author who grew adult in Michigan before spending his early adulthood in New York, where he was a performer and executive with Blue Man Group, was perplexed by a thought of owning a home that came with centuries’ value of stories.

And since they both transport frequently to New York for work, they wanted a residence within travelling stretch of Manhattan.
