Imagine the setting: a private stream on acres in the country with a little island, a big meadow, and a wood in back.
Imagine the family: two doctors, escaping the chaos of the ER and the hospital, and that of Portland to spend time with their young boys in the country.
Imagine the house: a view wall to the waterfront, a courtyard, with a pool and fountain. A homey, timeless look, but with muscular functionality for this family. Play area in sight of the kitchen. A “sleepatorium” for when one of those busy doctor/parents needs to block out all stimuli in favor of rest and repair. A plunge pool and gym to keep the parents young. An entertainer’s space, with guest rooms and flow to the outside; the house is a catalyst for new traditions.
The Creekside House has perhaps the best natural surroundings we’ve had the pleasure to work in. The flowing water and growing things bring out the best of us and our designers. This home harmonizes with the surrounding forest.
Bathed in light, with style borne of joyful living minutely anticipated. Impressive by its perfection of design. This house answers the demands of this smart, busy, sweet, family of four. To paraphrase Sir Winston Churchill, ‘We shape our (houses) and then they shape us.’ The family eagerly waits to board this vehicle for better lives.
