This is a real gem of a home. Lisa Luby Ryan, the extremely talented designer and principal with Luby Design Associates— who also owns the wonderful home furnishings boutique, Vintage Living, took it down to the studs for her friend, Lucy Johnson. Johnson is also a realtor with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s. Take that in for a moment: two women, who each know a great deal about houses, working together. It’s a given that no detail was overlooked, and the result is not only something spectacular but completely unexpected. That is, it’s unexpected to the passerby or anyone driving up because you cannot possibly imagine what has transpired behind that front door.
And it’s a perfect example of why you can’t judge a book by its cover.
