Children's Author-Illustrator Tasha Tudor's Bucolic Redding Estate Lists for $3.85M

The pastoral Tudor estate sits on 20 acres in Redding.The renowned children’s author-illustrator Tasha Tudor lived on a farm in Redding as a young girl, a bucolic childhood that would be reflected in her work. Their homestead featured the tearoom her mother operated in the house; farm animals, including the milking cow Tasha called her own; woodlands and fields of wildflowers. If that sounds like pastoral perfection to you, check out the Tudor’s 20-acre estate, on a road now called Tudor Road, newly listed for $3,850,000. The Federal-style main house has such fully refurbished antique charms as wide-board flooring, exposed beams and original cabinetry and fireplaces. More modern amenities include a state-of-the-art kitchen with an Aga cooker, among other top-quality appliances, a saltwater pool and terrace, and a one-time schoolhouse that’s now an office. The landscaped grounds also offer a rose garden, a chicken coop, kitchen gardens and an apple orchard. Karla Murtaugh of Neumann Real Estate has the listing.
