I am a clinical psychologist with a part-time private practice within the main house. My husband, Joe Tansey, is a chiropractor also in practice in Pepperell. Married 23 years, we have a 15-year-old daughter. We've fully renovated the Richards Lakin House, our 1884 Victorian home which we named after the original owners. We have lived here 17 years and have landscaped the property with beautiful gardens. I love to travel, garden, scrapbook, research genealogy, and to take photographs. I lived in England for 6 months as a 9-year-old girl and have loved traveling ever since. We've been to Ireland, Germany, Italy, England, Mexico, Canada and several areas of the United States (California, Arizona, Texas, Georgia, the Carolinas and all over New England). Since owning our home, we have always had renters (initially as year-round tenants until the past two years when we fully renovated the space and furnished it to rent on a nightly or occasional basis). I enjoy people and want to make their experience in our apartment very comfortable and a "home away from home."
