Belonging to it." - Frank Lloyd Wright~~~ Situated in the Medouie Creek enclave of beautifully constructed homes on over-sized parcels of land with shared harbor access and dock rights, this Shingle-style Timber Frame custom home, designed by renowned architecture firm Beyer Blinder Belle and masterfully crafted with meticulous attention to every detail by Woodmeister Master Builders in 2002-2003, features incredible, dramatic interior and exterior living spaces with a wonderful use of stone and wood throughout.
