It is alive now, after 13 years of dreaming and designing. Friends and Family visit often. We still have much to do, but since we moved in July of 2009, we have accomplished a lot. It is a work in progress, and will be the rest of my life.
I purchased the land and a house that was on it those 13 years ago. I started envisioning the possible results. In 2007, Christine and I pushed over and burned down the existing house, which is on 6 acres with a six acre lake. In it’s place we built a 7,000 sq. ft. house with a 1,600 sq ft veranda that wraps around the whole second floor. Never did I dream that I would have a home with a name. It really came from my friends and adopted family in Italy, Casa Caponetti.
Please come for a visit. We tour daily.
We want to grow the Somerset area to be the Sonoma of Kansas. Somerset is a vanished town, a town that used to have it’s own zip code, but due to diminished population, the town became part of Paola and lost it’s post office. We are located a mile from the Louisburg Cidermill. We would love to see you.
