Experience designer Helene Aumont’s French Country Farmhouse in the quaint Village of Ballard. Reminiscent of her childhood home in Corsica, this romantic property evokes thegrace and beauty we have come to associate with the South of France. The Provencal vibe pairs beautifully with its relaxed sophistication. Lush flowering gardens and mature olive trees embrace the farmhouse and pool surrounded by multiple entertaining areas for effortless indoor/outdoor living. The interior of the residence is grounded with limestone and distressed Pine floors that offset 2 Provencal doors in the foyer. The vestibule opens to a charming great room highlighted by a XVIII Century French corner cabinet and a built-in XIX Century bar with original Italian marble counter. The remodeled kitchen with new stainless appliances and beautiful painted cabinetry, opens to a sunny breakfast nook overlooking the kitchen garden and orchard. The focal point of the very comfortable living room, is an original Sartres masonry limestone fireplace and the living space is enhanced with iconic crown moldings, double hanging windows and French doors. A sunlit music room and personal study is adjoining and is one of Ms. Aumont’s treasured spaces. A large screened veranda provides year around casual dining and offers enchanting views of the pool and gardens. Additional summer porches are accessed off of the primary bedroom and bath lending an air of a by-gone era when life was so simple.
