Mackenzie-Childs Farmhouse 2018

 
These photos are from our visit to MacKenzie-Childs 2018 but worth sharing again. Most of you know that MacKenzie-Childs has turned their Aurora retail store into an outlet which will open May 1. We're looking forward to making our annual Mother's Day weekend trip to MKC and Sycamore Hill Gardens, and I can't wait to take updated photos.  

The 3,300-square-foot, three-story Farmhouse is an example of classic Second Empire/mansard architecture, which was popular from 1860 to 1900, particularly in the Northeast. It shows many features of that style, including a mansard roof, decorative dormer windows, and porches with columns. Its interior was remodeled extensively in the early 2000s, but some of its original charming features remain, including the front doors and several sets of pocket doors believed to be black walnut. Here are a couple photos so you can see the mansard roof and porch with columns. 



Prior to being acquired by the founders of MacKenzie-Childs in 1986, the Farmhouse was the centerpiece of a working dairy farm. I have loved this vintage bed forever. 











 These photos are the most viewed on my blog over the last two weeks. I'm glad I have photos due to all the changes.

  4. Debbie, I'm so glad you shared these photos. You have some excellent shots of inside the farm house. I always enjoyed revisiting photos of this charmer. I hope MC continues to share it with the public. It's an amazing home for its architecture and for the incredible history of MC pieces through the years.
    Enjoy the weekend trip to Aurora. For me it would be the perfect special get away.
