The View-June 2015

By Rita Allen & Connie Davis
In the morning of April 14, 2015, the Deercreek Home and Garden Club hosted a well-attended golf cart tour, which enabled many non-golfers to become acquainted with the landscapes of our neighbors’ back yards in addition to street scenes. As a result of this tour and by popular acclaim, the Deercreek View for June 2015 has been awarded to the home of Vicki and Charlie Khan, 10148 Deercreek Club East. With its wide, open porches, the sweeping back view looks upon much of the 17th hole and fairway. Loropetalum, crepe myrtle trees and agapanthus provide color; stately oaks, hollies and a variety of palms frame the sides. In the front, bottlebrush, pineapple guava, sago palms, shaped ligustrum and holly trees guide visitors along the curved pathway to the front door with its transom and sidelights of beveled glass. The gabled windows and shutters further enhance the sense of welcoming tradition that appeals to so many of us.
