A cliff overlooking Whitehall Creek provides a 270 degree water view for this beautiful home. Waterside open porches, steep roofs, a bow window, and a softly curving wall combine for a house that blends with the land, takes advantage of every view, and provides architectural drama and interest.

Adding a new second floor and converting the existing one car garage to additional interior space added a lot of square footage to this small ranch in West Annapolis. New roof lines, updated materials, windows, and the covered front porch and carport totally changed the style and look. Inside walls were removed between the main living spaces, and the previous front bedroom becomes a large TV room. The sun room is elevated to the main floor level with a higher ceiling and polished concrete floor. Sunlight now pours into the house and transitions to the outside are easy. See the Before photos at the end of the photo chain.

An abandoned cabin was removed to make way for this lovely new waterfront home with cottage charm nestled on Cypress Creek. The oversized two car garage is attached by a breezeway to the house. The house is 2400 sf with three bedrooms upstairs and a formal dining room and great room/kitchen on the main level. The great room opens to the view and a deck with a screened porch on the side. Off the entry is a large mud room, powder, and laundry area.
Approaching the house, you view the front porch beyond the garage.
A large porch, stone details, and return eaves characterize the house. The metal roofed breezeway connects the house to the garage, but allows air flow and opens up the front yard.
A screened porch on the end has 3 sides open to catch the breeze off the water.
The waterside features lots of glass to the view, a simple deck , screened porch, and easy access to the pier.
