Continuing my series "can you see the house?"
Is it possible for one to see the Lewis house from the/a road?

Thank You

The Google map for the address you supplied strongly suggests that the answer is no.

Google doesn't show driveways, but there has to be one: the house includes a carport, and cars have been photographed at the house . . .

There's a driveway, that you can enter, from the Little St. Mary's Road straight to the north of the house.

On Google maps north is always up. So, perhaps the driveway travels west from Little St. Mary's Road to the river and the house ?

It would be great to see the lot lines in the neighborhood. Rather than owning the right-of-way to the house, the owner of the property might have an easement through neighbors' property ?

Good one. Well, it should be clear that that (unpaved ?) lane goes to Little St. Mary's Road to the right, and continues to the Lewis house to the left. There was no doubt a time before that newer house was built, that the Lewis lane served only the Wright-designed house.

Lewis lane ? Isn't that Clark Kent's girlfriend ?

I pass by there periodically. If I have time, tomorrow I will take some photos/videos (from the street). It will only show the street/driveway. You cannot see the house from the street.

We've already established the street nearest the house, from which a hidden driveway descends. Now you're backing further away from the site ? I don't understand . . .

In this image you can see part of the driveway running from the right, perpendicular from the W. Little St. Mary's Road off the screen, to the Lewis house on the left of the image..
On Google Streetview one can see the entrance to the driveway from the W. Little St. Mary's Road without a gate, so one can go closer to the house.
Right Tim?
