Nestled in the quiet and idyllic town of Hadlyme, CT is River Road Farm, the picturesque home of Robb Nestor and Bill Reynolds. Nestor, with a degree in horticulture and a successful landscaping company based in Atlanta, and Reynolds, with a family linage of gardening, spent two years in search of the perfect spot to call home and create their masterpiece. When the couple pulled up to the property, they knew instantly the setback home brimming with potential was the one.
Slowly, they transformed River Road Farm into the vibrant and full-of-life property that stands today. In the beginning years, Nestor and Reynolds split their time between Georgia and Connecticut. While designing from afar can prove challenging, it worked in the couple’s favor. Having the distance allowed them to evaluate the home with fresh eyes each visit.
Over the next decade, they rehabbed, planted, and decorated all on their own. Now, the eleven-acre property has three acres meticulously manicured with cultivated gardens, a beautifully restored main house, and numerous out buildings full of charm. Labor of love does not begin to describe the magnificence of River Road Farm.
