Liz Lacy loves Litchfield County. She has been living here for over thirty years. She and her family spent weekends, holidays and school vacations here. They rented for a year and a half in Washington, CT and since 1991 have owned homes. For the first twenty years she and her family were weekenders in Roxbury. And for the past dozen or more years she has been a full time resident, with her family coming and going. Early on she compared living in Litchfield County to Peter Mayle’s book A Year in Provence. Her friends would get together in each other’s backyards to share home cooked meals with their children and swim in each other’s pools. Since she raised her three kids in a New York City apartment, she wanted them to live in a house with a screened back door.
She lived in NYC for over thirty years. After renting for several years, she eventually negotiated the purchase of their Pre-War Classic Seven apartment, during a peak week of pricing. She redesigned their kitchen, switching the functions of the old kitchen and the service spaces, to create a more central, eat in, cook's kitchen, with one of the first restaurant stoves and farmhouse sinks, and it was like fitting a ship into a bottle. For their weekend antique country house, she redesigned three retro feeling, marble bathrooms for a house that originally had a three seater outhouse. She obtained a hardship variance for headroom in that house from the local ZBA. Also she created the AutoCAD drawings for the engineers report when stabalizing their iconic red English Bank barn, which is the focal point of that property. And she successfully negotiated highly unusual terms for the purchase of their next house.
She is into native and wildflower gardening, toiling outside in the yard, and cooking at home with high quality fresh ingredients from the local farm stands and farmers markets. As a member of the Roxbury Historic District Commission, she edited their publications and guided their most recent tour of the local Historic District. She is committed to saving old houses and barns and to preserving woods, water and open space including the Roxbury Land Trust. She majored in Art History in college and afterwards earned a professional degree in Architecture. Liz would love to find you the right home.
