House Tour | Alyson Horrocks' 18th-Century Colonial Home
Of course no old New England house would be complete without a ghost in residence. Although not included on the home’s listing sell sheet, various members of the family have heard weeping, laughter, and even a few sentences uttered in French drifting from the library.
Infused into the home’s style are pieces of art and ephemera that speak to Alyson’s love of all things historic, New England, and, yes, even a bit spooky—like the portrait she had painted of her family that includes the image of their home’s specter flitting through the village burying ground.
With an abundance of space for the kids to spread out, rooms filled with historic details including quirky nooks and crannies, and a resident ghost, the time Alyson spent searching for her dream home paid off. And with the task of finding the perfect place behind her, she now has plenty of time to focus on writing for her site, NewEnglandLiving.com, where she chronicles life in the six-state region.
