The stunning home of a celebrated photographer is now on the market in Edgemont. Situated in the Cotswolds, 11 Campden Road is said to be the only home built with local Cotswold stone. A recent renovation to the 1928 highlights the warm stone surfaces that are juxtaposed against a very contemporary interior. In 2008 the home was completely redone and there are new windows, a new kitchen and new baths, all done with impeccable taste.
What makes the home even more appealing, is the décor of the creative owner, Robyn Lea, who is a photographer and writer with a great eye. She recently published a large coffee table book called "Dinner with Jackson Pollack" that includes stunning photos of the artist's Long Island home and studio, paired with original recipes from the Pollack/Krasner kitchen. The book was published earlier this year and has gotten a great reception and a lot of good press.
Though the artist Jackson Pollock needs no introduction he was also a gardener, a baker, and an entertaining dinner-party host. The book includes more than 50 recipes that Robyn Lea collected from handwritten pages scrawled by Jackson, his wife, artist Lee Krasner, his mother, Stella, or traded among their many friends in the town of Springs on Long Island. The recipes are interspersed with Jackson's artwork, still lifes of the Pollock-Krasner home, landscapes and photographs of each delectable recipe, plus delightful tales from Jackson and Lee's family and local friends, for a truly unique and insightful portrait of a great American artist.
Lea is Austrailian and began her professional life as a photographer's assistant in Milan. She has since had an exciting career as a photographer, commercial director and writer and has had ten solo shows of her work.
The house in Edgemont reflects her good taste and includes artwork from her many endeavors. It's light, spare and appealing. Admitting to a "wallpaper fetish" the walls of several of the rooms are papered with beautiful murals and the living room has a wall of metallic squares that mimic the stonework on the other walls of the house.
Lea says she is sad to be leaving a neighborhood that she and her family have grown to love. They will return to their home in Melbourne, Australia with wonderful memories of New York. Her loss will be some new lucky homeowner's gain.
