As the weather has changed the trees from their varied shades of greens to burnt umbers, brilliant yellows and fiery reds ~ so our new property owners change the Nile Landing landscape from vacant treed lots into ones holding new homes and landscaped gardens.

It has been so rewarding to see the Nile Landing development grow into becoming such a nice street in the community of Bowser. Funny how it goes sometimes, but as far as we can tell, each and every family on Creekside Drive are friendly, happy and kind.

In my last update there was an offer pending on the Lot 3 spec house, we are pleased to say that it has indeed SOLD! The new homeowners took possession today and we wish them well with their move and settling in period!

The builder of this home has now purchased Lot 28 and will be staring a new spec house as soon as his building permit is ready!

The family on Lot 4 should be moving in shortly, their house looks to be very near completion.

More exciting news came in last week, a couple that would have liked to purchase the house on Lot 3 that had SOLD, bought Lot 6 instead and will be starting the process of creating their new home in Nile Landing!

An empty property has so much potential – I absolutely love all of the dreaming, planning and implementation of the ideas that evolve from this blank canvas through to a completed home.

The custom house we are building on Lot 15 for someone is shaping up well, the trusses were started last week, the roof sheathing and barge & fascia boards will go on next and then the roofers can begin. The weather has been so amazing throughout October, we are hoping November rains will hold off for just a little while longer. Not that rainy weather stops us or hurts the house at all but it is nice to get the roof on for the trades to start their rough-ins with a fairly dry house.

The house on Lot 16 was finished last month and that family has now moved in  ~ they have developed their property in such a way that it is bright and open but they still left the property nicely treed, creating a park like environment. You may notice, in the photo below, how far apart the houses are from each other ~ with each Nile Landing property being 1/2 acre and larger, the houses do not need to be as close to each other as is necessary in most standard subdivisions.

They have utilized a combination of both hardi-plank horizontal siding and board & batten, stained shingles, timbers and just a touch of K2 stone ~ they have obtained an upscale and yet comfortable looking house that has great curb appeal.

The back garden is going to be so inviting, the park like feeling is very apparent back here too ~ the cedar split rail fence adds to the charm!

The rocking chairs at the front door tell a story don’t they? At least they give the impression of a slower pace of life ~ one where we can take the time to sit on the front porch and watch the world go by. On Nile Landing porches you also have the benefit of hearing the gentle sounds of Nile Creek & the ocean and of inhaling the fragrance of the ocean air!
