Humble beginnings

Martha Stewart family home

The second of six children, Martha Stewart, or Martha Kostyra as she was born, grew up in a traditional family home at 86 Elm Place in Nutley, New Jersey. According to CNN Money, the three-bedroom, 1,922-square-foot residence dates to 1930. In 1987, Stewart’s mother sold the home to buyers. This three-story Colonial-style home is where Stewart grew up and spent her early years. The star lived here from the young age of three throughout her high school years (via Fox News).

Stewart learned and explored her adoration for crafting, cooking, and sewing in this house. Her mother taught her these skills in her youth. Martha also picked up her father’s passion for gardening (via Velvet Ropes). A holly bush and fig tree that Stewart planted with her dad still stand on the property. From humble beginnings, Stewart developed a joy for lifestyle tips, recipes, and domestic activities that she continues to share with the public.

According to The New York Times, Stewart calls Katanoh, New York her permanent home. The lifestyle expert resides here on a stunning 152-acre estate. First settled in 1784, the property has seen many renovations, updates, and refurbishments since Stewart purchased the estate in 1999 from its previous owner, Ruth Sharpe. The main house, also known as "Winter House," features 12 bedrooms.

Over the years, Stewart added structural updates to the main home, including a complete kitchen and dining area extension. Other home renovations included converting a barn to a project room and adding a garage to the grounds. She also developed and executed a remodel of the enclosed porch in front of the main house. She even had the front of the home turned to face in a completely different direction. Stewart loves the new space, which is also home to her beloved budgies (via MTV Cribs).
