“The great thing about a big house is that everyone fits,” she says. “There’s always space for family and friends.” She might have 40 people singing Christmas carols at the piano, 22 for dinner in the dining room, or an intimate summer lunch on the terrace--each event done with meticulous attention to detail, from custom-made linens to the perfect crème anglaise. “Any excuse will do for a party,” she says. But with a home as lovely as Hidden Pond Farm, she doesn’t need any excuse at al.
