Author Amy Stewart Says Goodbye to Her California Victorian — House Tour

Name: Amy Stewart and Scott Brown
Location: Eureka, California
Size: 2800 square feet
Years Lived In: 17 years; own (well, we used to own it. We just sold the house and we’re moving to Portland.)

How do you say goodbye to a house you’ve lived in and loved for 17 years? That’s just the dilemma writer and artist Amy Stewart and her husband, Scott Brown, a rare book dealer , recently faced when they decided to sell the big Victorian house in Eureka, California they’ve lived in for almost two decades. Amy and Scott are downsizing and making the move to Oregon. “The new condo in Portland is cool, but it’s not 110 years old,” wrote Amy. To help with the farewells, she took pen (and watercolor) to paper to illustrate her favorite elements to this house. “The sketchbook is SUCH therapy. I don’t know if I will ever get over this house. I question my sanity every day for leaving such a gorgeous home.”

Designer Caroline Z Hurley’s Textile-Filled Studio Apartment — House Tour

Name: Caroline Z Hurley
Location: West Village, NYC
Size: 420 square feet
Years lived in: 13 years

Caroline Z Hurley has lived in her apartment for 13 years, but has known the space even longer. Both of her sisters each lived in the apartment before her, and at one point, Caroline shared the 420-square-foot studio with one of them! Originally, the apartment was just an open studio with a half-wall separating the bedroom area. And while it eventually took ten months and one giant leak to renovate the space, the end result was worth it all.

A Collector’s Victorian Cape Town Cottage Inspired by the East — House Tour

Name: Sarah Scott and her pugs, Lulu and Ozzy
Location: Sea Point East, Cape Town
Size: 1615 square feet
Years lived in: 2.5 years, owned

p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Helvetica}

The beautiful house you see today is a far cry from how it looked when Sarah, a designer, purchased it two and a half years ago. She had chanced upon the property when it was totally derelict and still in the very beginning stages of a renovation. But it was the incredible Victorian staircase that sold Sarah on this 1901 naval cottage…and made her put in an offer.
