Spa Creek Cottage
Project Details
Location: Annapolis, Maryland
Year: 1997

This neo-traditional, Shingle style cottage is nestled into a small, private waterfront community in Annapolis’ Eastport neighborhood. With sensitivity to the scale of the homes surrounding it, its siting maximizes both privacy and waterviews.

The house, with a T-shaped plan, and its free-standing garage, are placed on the site to create both an entrance courtyard and a private garden and terrace accessible from the major first floor rooms. The steeply sloped roof, dormers, over-hanging gable ends, turret-like bay windows, and massive chimney all reference a cottage-like feeling appropriate to the turn-of-the-century working-class character of Eastport.

Complementing its form as a waterman’s cottage, the feel of this home is relaxed and unassuming. Its spaces speak of a simplicity of life that goes back in time, yet remains current.
