The circa 1790 farmhouse on 229 acres in
Andover was renovated to be both a space
to live in and one to display antique treasures.
The barn is circa 1950.
WE ALL HAVE STORIES, PERSONAL HISTORIES.
The same can hold true for relationships and
inanimate objects like antique furnishings, lamps,
dining sets and paintings. Even homes. Just ask
Dr. Joseph Spychalski.
Spychalski today lives in a spectacular 225-yearold
farmhouse in Andover, lovingly restored over
seven years with his husband, Dr. Joe Chittkusol.
But Spychalski's road to Andover, and the one-ofa-kind
18th-century Americana antique collection
that fills their farmhouse, is a long and intriguing
one, a journey filled with numerous twists and
turns. That road reveals a fascinating history.
" I do think that many collectors of Early American
furniture, or those living in period homes, enjoy
moments of feeling like we are living back in time, "
says Spychalski. " When you buy an old home, or an
old piece of furniture, it's difficult to say you own it.
Rather, it owns you. You're but another individual
in a long history of that chair's or home's existence.
We become mere stewards of its existence. "
A native of Cheektowaga, near Buffalo in western
New York, Spychalski grew up " in a modern mid20th-century
home. New furniture, flat floors, straight
walls, doors that closed and stairs without squeaks. "
