It's no surprise that most people have never heard of Hidden Creek at the Darby. It is well secluded and perhaps a best kept secret in Central Ohio. Located about 15 minutes west of Columbus, it is a treasure of nature nestled along the Little Darby creek. When Gerry and Anne Hudson first saw it they knew it was where they would build their dream house. 604 acres have been developed in a way that showcases 'best practices' for development of environmentally significant areas. Preservation of the natural environment was a top priority in creating each of the 120 multi-acre home sites. A 240-acre nature preserve along with five wetlands, have been added to the former farmland, offering more pollution control for the Little Darby. "Warm Camp" the Hudson residence - is sited on 5 acres in the most secluded and private section of Hidden Creek. Jim Weiker of The Columbus Dispatch describes the house as "a chorus of classic American architectural voices." These voices blend in perfect harmony to create a distinctly "American" home. Chicago architect John Tilton says that combining "a Maine-New England-camp design feel, (with) Craftsman, Prairie and Shingle Style features, was a tall order. It was both fun and a challenge." Tilton concludes, "but I think we pulled it off.” Listed well below reproduction cost at $2.2M it is an architectural masterpiece. View the attached video and see it for yourself.
