- Bouverie Preserve
Join us for this Peek Into M.F.K. Fisher's Last House, the home of legendary author M.F.K. Fisher. Mary Frances, as she was known by her family and friends, wrote 13 books during 21 years of residence in Last House, which was built for her by architect David Pleydell-Bouverie. She treasured her palazzino, which features a simple design and connection to the land. Its two large rooms are divided by a huge bathroom, with black tile floors throughout and built-in bookcases for over 2,000 books. One arched porch looks west to Sonoma Mountain and another looks east to the 535 acres of land protected by ACR.
ACR is renovating M.F.K. Fisher's “Last House” on the Bouverie Preserve in Glen Ellen into an exclusive destination honoring her legacy and celebrating her love of food, wine, literature and nature. As part of the restoration, some of Mary Frances' personal art, books and other possessions have returned to the house, giving it a bit of the feel it had when she lived there. The Chinese Red wall of art in her bathroom has been recreated, and can now be enjoyed as it was when Mary Frances welcomed visitors to Last House.
Light refreshments served.
