Valerie Young was the daughter of Morris and Dot Young. She was proud of her Italian ancestry. A Doctor of anthropology from University of Pennsylvania, she was always intrigued by the convergence of mind, body and soul practices.
In 2011, Valarie had started on her plans for building her dream home. Then she was diagnosed with stage IV cancer which created an immediacy to finishing the house. During her last two years she never gave up on life, her house or creating an enduring legacy.
Valaterra is located on over 100 acres of beautiful wooded valleys and rolling fields near Louisville, Kentucky. Amidst some of the most forested property along Harrods Creek, connection with the land is encouraged here through hiking trails and outdoor meeting spaces. Large boulders, rocky cliffs and wild flowers await your visit.
