Imagine living in a 12th century house! If only it could talk - I'm sure the stories it could tell of its history would be amazing.



Quote:
Susan Herrmann Loomis, a food writer, chef and cooking teacher, lives with her two children in a 12th-century house in Louviers, France, an old Norman town a little more than 60 miles north of Paris. The structure's mismatched roof line reflects the house's lengthy history, which included 300 years of use as a convent. When Ms. Herrmann Loomis and her then-husband bought the place in 1993, the place was occupied by squatters and had holes in the ceilings, walls and floors.

The one completely modernized room in the house is the kitchen, where Ms. Herrmann Loomis gives cooking lessons to clients from around the world. The kitchen has an open fireplace, a traditional cast-iron Aga stove and a Cornetto oven from Italy. Beneath the house is a stone wine cellar. Area residents have told Ms. Herrmann Loomis that it was part of an underground tunnel system used by the village's Catholics to escape from the French Huguenots in the 16th century. She says she does not know if the story is true. The master bedroom. The house has about 3,800 square feet of living space spread over three levels.

Cesky Krumlov, a popular tourist spot in the Czech Republic, is the setting for a 400-year-old whitewashed stone house, foreground, owned by Carolyn and Cal Zukowski. At the rear of the picture, the spire of the village's 13th century castle can be seen.

Almost 20 years ago Mr. Zukowski found the riverside house, abandoned and filled with trash, and paid the equivalent of $6,000 for it. The couple has spent years renovating the house, including installing insulation and digging new foundations to combat the dampness from the adjacent river.

This 15-year-old stone house, on the island of Kea, is an hourlong ferry ride from Lavrio, a town on the mainland about 30 minutes from Athens. The home sits on 0.62 acres, and is situated on a hillside above the Bay of Kounderos. The property has a private chapel.

Visually, this home fits right in with the other Greek Revivals in Dutchess County, N.Y. However unlike its neighbors, many of which are well over 150 years old, this traditional-looking country house was built in 1999. When looking for a 19th-century Greek Revival to restore as a weekend home, Gil Schafer, a Manhattan architect, found most to be out of his price range. Instead, he chose to build his own "old" house.

Kitchen cabinet drawer handles look convincingly 19th century, but they are actually brass bin pulls that Mr. Schafer bought from Pottery Barn and then treated to give them a patina of age. The kitchen flooring is made of new Southern yellow pine, and the table was found in Maine. The furnishings are mostly 19th-century English and American antiques that Mr. Schafer inherited or bought. The back parlor has wall-to-wall seagrass carpeting.
