The 19th annual Newcomers/Longtimers Home Tour is just a few days away — Saturday, May 18 — and showcases homes at Cross Creek in Camdenton.
Among the homes on the tour are these:
The David and Phyllis Mossman “Upscale Rustic” Lake Home is 3,100 square feet.
This home captures you quickly with the impressive timber frame front entrance followed by an eye catching, large great room with a beautiful reclaimed antique oak floor, selected from several 1930s Missouri barns. The 14-foot sandstone fireplace and mantle are a just a few of the accents in this beautifully designed home.
The Greg and Jamie Hicks “Traditional Raised Ranch” lake home is 4,000 square feet.
The owners designed and built a home in Cross Creek and, because they loved the area, five years ago they designed another new home in Cross Creek. The beautiful, curved staircase and the spacious great room, with its two-story vaulted ceiling and eight-foot doors and windows, is truly the center of the home. There is a wonderful working kitchen with a center island, granite counters and dark cherry cabinets. But, so very unique is the convex curved bank of cabinets with glass doors that makes this kitchen outstanding. The owners’ creative touches show in their hand-built furniture, interior design and flower design.
Rich and Kathy Hodits have a 4,400 square foot "Lake Traditional" home with spectacular lake views.
The large foyer with stairs to the lower level leads into the living room and then out to a large screened-in deck. Family heritage, dating back more than 100 years, has been preserved by the Hodits and can be admired throughout --- a gorgeous oak mantle surrounding the fireplace, grandfather’s bookkeeping desk and a marble top table. The furniture in the master suite, except for the immense four-poster bed, was designed and built by Mennonite craftsmen. In many rooms you will see natural wood “intarsia” pieces, made by Rich Hodits in his woodworking shop.
Jeff and Carol Zelms’ beautiful 7,600-square foot, three-level home features timber beams in the two-story great room, a copper-plated bar and ceiling and a dry-heat sauna on the lower level, and a large flagstone patio with pool and fire pit. Next to the home, with the same exterior design, is a 4,900-square-foot garage built for vintage cars with a woodworking shop and office.
Page 2 of 2 - This beautiful, 5,500 square foot, five-bedroom/five-bath home belongs to James and Tina Glenn and has a stunning lake view with 115 feet of lakefront. The open floor plan with its eclectic style highlights the Glenns’ extensive travels to China. The breathtaking entrance frames the panoramic lake view and leads to a spacious open concept living area with a soaring stone fireplace.
