Overview Looking Southeast

This FLW design epitomizes Wright's desire to build right to the land. The house sits atop the bluff that overlooks Lake Michigan, in fact, the best features of the house are below grade, overlooking the lake. Since I didn't have waders with me the day I took these photos, the street side view is all we have.
