Revisiting my Movie Night post about our recent viewing of the Sandra Bullock/Ryan Reynolds flick, The Proposal, I neglected to mention the gorgeous setting. The House: it should have been credited as part of the supporting cast.
My parents used to live in a cove off the Gulf of Mexico. I have friends who live a stone’s throw from a lake; these people drive vehicles (on highways) to reach their homes. And even though I don’t know anyone who travels by boat in order to arrive home, I can accept there are those folks as well.
But I have to say my imagination is piqued. The House would be spectacular, even if you didn’t have to take a boat to get there. You’ve got the water in front, the mountains and lighthouse behind and a pristine landscape that oozes peace and quiet. (What’s not to like?!) Plus, there’s something totally romantic and intriguing about motoring up to your home via a boat dock. What mystery awaits when you set foot on land? (It’s not the ordinariness I experience motoring up my drive and into the garage.)
Much to my pleasure, my daughter sent me a link to enjoy! Hooked on Houses lays bare some mysteries of the Sitka house. Fun! This is a new website for me, but I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and the revelations about this fantastic house. Since I’m something of a hobbyist when it comes to house-hunting, I appreciated some still shots of this house and the chance to take a leisurely look at them.
I can’t imagine handing my home over to a movie crew, especially knowing they would transform it so dramatically! Nevertheless, I’m glad the owners shared their home with the film-makers of The Proposal, and by extension, with movie viewers like me.
