Clark Residence

Eastern Shore, Maryland, 1995

 

The drive is straight and focuses on the front door, some 400 yards distant.  This drum roll is reinforced as one first passes between a pair of trees, then 30 yards more through a group of six, then through 12 and finally a grove of 21 that shade and soften the seven gabled ends that announce the house and its entry.  The house is of traditional yet classic Eastern Shore design: No gutters, simple lines and large openings that reflect the tobacco barns of the 18th Century.
