Kerr-Campbell House, 1936/1989
This contemporary 2-story house of cedar and glass is comfortably nestled in a rural oasis, by scenic Abers Creek. Built in 1936, the house began life as a small one-room hunting and fishing lodge. Later additions included a second room, and a kitchen. in time it served as asummer cottage for the Algers family, and for Mr. and Mrs. E. J. Mower.
In 1989, the cottage was bought by the current owners, Bob Kerr and Marcy Campbell. It was then extensively remodeled, with the assistance of architect James Campbell, who helped the owners transform the modest cottage into this striking modern house. The grounds were designed by landscape architect Marcy Campbell whose extensive use of native plants helped to assure that the house and its grounds blended in with its natural environment. A free-standing deck runs along the side of the house, overhanging the banks of the creek, while a wooden suspension foot-bridge spans the stream providing a sweeping alternate approach to the house.
