RomANTIQUE: A tour of Kuh Ledesma’s Hacienda Isabellamichael1
People know her either as a pop singer or an actress, but few people know that Kuh Ledesma is also a frustrated architect. The opportunity to design her own home was a dream come true. “Yung mga frustrations ko dati, d’yan [sa Hacienda Isabella] ko nilalagay,” she told Kara David in a recent episode of the GMA-7 late-night program “Powerhouse.”
Hacienda Isabella, named after Kuh’s daughter, is located in Indang, Cavite. Kuh’s dream was only to build a small farmhouse surrounded by fruit-bearing trees, but today, Hacienda Isabella is a popular wedding venue. The compound is filled with reproduction antique furniture that Kuh designed herself.
