The house viewed from the south in a photo taken from the creek. New decks are visible
as is the bridge from the house that crosses the creek.
Architect Keith Reeves describes this
mountain home as a "work-in-progress."
It was first published in Florida/Caribbean
Architect in 1977 when it was constructed
as an 800-square-foot vacation "cabin."
Thirty-eight years and several additions
later, it is now a 2,310-square-foot home.
Additions made in 1999, 2004 and 201314 produced a new living room, dining
room, master bedroom/library, a studio
and crafts room and an upper level
bedroom and bathrooms. These additions,
including outside decks, have nearly
tripled the house's original square footage.
The deeply contoured 140-acre site
is adjacent to a spring-fed creek with a
waterfall as its focal point. The house
is oriented north and exterior decks
were designed to provide unobstructed
The current addition includes decking on the north, south and east sides. The Crafts Studio is visible in the foreground with dining room, master
bedroom and bath just beyond the creek bridge.
