About Pia Rigby

I lived in NYC for 25 years and now am in Italy. I come to the States often for work, family and friends.

Pia Rigby purchased this house in 2014

Why Pia Rigby chose Ashford

I wanted a peaceful place to relax, create and get away from it all and yet still be near NY and those close to me. My parents had a second home in the area for years.

What makes this house unique

Totally private, with an incredible view from the house of a beautiful, fresh water swimming pond. Sun and shade, great for gardening and has a vegetable garden. Perfect for contemplation and creativity.

Peaceful and serene!
Pia and Ali were a pleasure to work with!

Wonderful place!

We stayed the last week in August at this beautiful home. Rustic, simple and comfortable with a beautiful private pond. The owner and her assistant were extremely friendly and helpful. Perfect for a quiet and secluded vacation. Highly recommended!
