Buy Land To know the MacKenzie-Childs name is to recognize, with a nod and a wink, the visionaries who launched a playful take on home furnishings decades ago – with a fresh line of ceramics and furniture that rescued dull decorating

palettes everywhere. But the inside story is the way the couple transformed their own surroundings, making them as vibrant and whimsical as the art they still create every day, from the crisp and colorful clothes they wear to the plump footstools in their living room. Come, view the masters at home.

FARMHOUSE IN THE FINGER LAKES “Our whole business started in the back shed in our house upstate. We made things we had a need for – ceramic dishes and furniture,” says Richard. “When buyers came from Neiman Marcus, I’d say ‘That’s not for sale. I made that for Victoria,’ but they’d say, ‘Well, let’s add that to the line.’” And what fertile workspace the couple had for inspiration. Their historic seven-bedroom estate on Cayuga Lake, the longest of the Finger Lakes, was once a Seckel pear farm – the rustic, exposed post-and-beam style home is located on 43 acres, with studio, carriage house, and retail shop. Best of all, the King Ferry residence
is steps away from the Cayuga Lake Wine Trail, with 16 wineries and vineyards. And the estate’s painterly summer gardens yield bouquet after bouquet of gladiolas in sherbet colors, black-eyed Susans, and vibrant zinnias. “It took the same resourcefulness to fix an historic farmhouse as it did to fix a one-hundred-year old boat,” says Richard. “Victoria and I have a love of adventure.”
1907 FERRY HOBOKEN, NJ
Buy Sea FLOATING ISLAND Just as with their landlocked home, the couple embraced the history of their seagoing residence. The bulk of its classic features remain, from the portholes to the radiators. Yankee (first called Machigonne) is docked in Hoboken right across from New York City’s majestic skyline, and Richard and Victoria have lived aboard her rocking cradle for more than 10 years. Built in 1907, she first ferried vacationers in Maine from Portland to the Calendar Islands. She then did a stint in World War I, patrolling Boston Harbor, before ferrying immigrants in the 1920s on the last leg of their journey, from the harbor to Ellis Island. The last remaining Ellis Island ferry, Yankee is on the National Register of Historic Places. Later known as the beloved “Daddy boat,” she carried fathers to Block Island on the weekends, to join their families summering there.
“I love to feel the energy, the excitement of the immigrants who rode her and first saw the Statue of Liberty,” says first mate Jacques Rasp
To make the cherished vessel a comfortable houseboat, Richard and Victoria added a new kitchen (in the old galley where hotdogs and clam chowder were served), bathroom and two bedrooms on the main deck, but preserved the “bones” and original history as much as possible – from the iron bunk bed suspended from the wall in the crew quarters in 1907 to the worn wooden benches on the passenger deck, benches that held immigrants who arrived with gold-dusted dreams. “What this boat represented to immigrants was hope,” says Richard. The couple added clever new twists, too, beyond WiFi and electric lines: The aft deck houses a coop for six chickens and the mahogany dining room tabletop can be hoisted up to the ceiling to clear the floor for parties or performances. Yankee’s beauty drifts on. “I love to feel the energy, the excitement of the immigrants who rode her and first saw the Statue of Liberty,” says first mate Jacques Rasp, who mans the pilot house and helps manage and maintain the ferry.

Green is Good
Richard and Victoria have an eye for all things vintage. He recently stitched a quilt from swatches saved since 1974, they covered the seat of an old wooden chair with a glorious orange fabric remnant, and they store belongings in timeworn, slightly battered steamer trunks on the deck of Yankee. Their ferry-side “Polka Dot Garden” consists of 130 old car tires that were destined for the dump – until Victoria decided they’d be perfect planters for heirloom tomatoes, popping corn, pumpkins, nasturtium, basil and more. When Yankee is open to the Hoboken community for special events, guests have sampled the homegrown popcorn and Victoria’s brownies infused with garden basil.
