“We really wanted to preserve the landscape as much as possible,” says Brenda. “I don’t believe in taking down trees just so I can show off our view.” Instead, trees are carefully trimmed back to create a canopy over the yard, keeping it cool during summer months. “The sunsets are really magnificent,” says Brenda—hence the name of the cottage.
Fifteen years after moving in, Brenda’s love affair with the cottage is still going strong. This truly is a love story with a happy ending.
