Previews: . . . . . .



House #6

This one seemed rather bare and I think it might have been fairly new, although it has a wonderful waterfall and rocky border. The koi, we were told, were hiding in their cave under the waterfall.

House #6 Pond


House #7

This pond took up most of these owners' front yard. It was the biggest we saw on the tour, and the most naturalized. We were able to meet the man who designed and built it, who was really fun to talk to. He told me it took only 5 days to build it. *amazed*

This was the patio that was in their backyard. I love the flagstones!

House #8

This was one of my favorites, for the beautiful waterfall and the naturalistic bottom.

Oh my! This place was so impressive - not that you could tell from the front of the house. *grin*

House #9 Front yard


But when you stepped into the backyard, it was astonishing. They were right on the river and it was gorgeous!

House #9 Backyard


They had many different areas and features - statues, water fountains & sitting areas besides the pond. And then there were stone steps that went right down to a boat dock on the river. Very cool!!
