Knox House, Kilmichael
With fond memories of enjoying tea on the porch with Ms. Knox as a little girl, Melissa Lott could not resist the call of owning this 162-year old house when it came up for sale while she was home visiting for her 20th high school reunion. Working with Belinda Stewart Architects, the Knox House was restored to become a lovely venue for weddings. After deciding to move home permanently in 2021, the team got back together to reimagine the kitchen and pantry. Melissa can now welcome friends for tea on the lovely front porch in the manner of Ms. Knox.
