Bruce Wirtz MacArthur and Susan MacArthur have the most perfect spot to relax: their east Springfield home. Located near Pearson’s Creek, the home boasts great scenery, and the interior is just as beautiful thanks to a recent remodel by Sam Butler of SustainaBuilt Construction and architect Geoff Butler of Butler, Rosenbury & Partners. Perhaps the best view in the entire place is out of the living room window, which allows the couple to take in a 180-degree view of nearby woods and the creek. “We can even hear the creek up here,”

Susan says. They see turkey and deer, and they’ve even seen a groundhog before. The couple has plans to possibly expand the deck in the future, but for now, the two enjoy taking in the gorgeous natural beauty of 417-land.
