Does the streambed go clear across the property or just in front of the house? I love it!

The high point is at the bridge/porch extension. Therefore the bridge does not actually span water but has the illusion. we directed drainage flow to both ends of home and than into more elaborate stream beds and falls and outcrops as it flows through backyard which has about 25' of drop.

Love the House! - I love the house and would like to see the entire front, face forward! I have purchased a red brick ranch house and want to update the front. This style is very similar to my new house.

This was a 70's ranch style and we changed the front porch by extending the covered bridge 90 degrees from existing porch. They have significant drainage issues and the dry stream is to allow for some infiltration and to direct away from home.
