time to start betting how long it will take to sell. My guess is 3-1/2 years at half the initial asking.

Egad. Well . . . it has its moments. Way too many of them, probably, and most not worth writing home about.

Is that really a zig-zag dining table ? I'd have to live with it, before commenting. Nothing was safe, not even Roderick's Hollyhock living-room furnitecture. Or do you prefer "megastructure" ?

The barn-like main space is a disgrace . . .

The narrator’s voice and accent are the perfect compliment to this pretentious palace.

A neat house with a spectacular site that stands on its own merits. This doesn't need a comparison with Wright.

This is actually quite a nice house that needs no FLW association to draw attention to it. I wonder who the actual architect was.

2002 is a surprising build date for this house; it appears to have the earmarks of a design from sixty years earlier . . . specifically Deck House, in Acton, MA,
which is still in operation. Postwar New England competitors included TechBuilt---but the Deck House (these post-and-beam designs utilized commercial-
structure tongue-and-groove decking for floors and roofs, permitting four-foot spans) has the tapered beam outriggers seen in the subject residence.
