For Cleve and Brenda Waters, this stunning, tranquil European house is their second take on a dream home. Married for almost 40 years, they’ve lived on a large property in a spacious home with lots of acreage for half that time. With horses, barns, fields, and a creek, the Waters were accustomed to wide open spaces and lots of hard work. But once all three of their children had moved out, the pair began toying with the idea of living a different lifestyle.
After years of consideration, they finally decided to enjoy the flipped side of life and move to a more urban setting. With the help of their son, Brandon Waters, of Waters-Holland Residential Builders, they designed and built a new version of their dream home. Located in Cambridge Square, a new neighborhood development complete with restaurants, shops, and neighbors, they found the urban setting they sought. And, since they were completely changing up their daily routine already, they decided they might as well completely change up their home’s style too.
