To the manor worn
High on a hill overlooking the Cross River Reservoir, the Tudor Revival manor known as The Belfry has stood proudly for almost a century. Offering unlimited possibilities for 21st century living (almost 8,000 square feet of grand living space, stone archways, a gated courtyard, over 16 acres of rolling lawns, gardens, meandering paths, and incomparable views), our production team was thrilled to invite local residents to model fall fashions against this Old World backdrop. With a wink toward The Belfry’s elegant past, we styled our models in current day fashions that have a bit of vintage flair. All wardrobe items are available from local retailers (see captions for details). The Belfry itself is available through Ginnel Real Estate.
