Wrong Wright influence...John Lloyd Wright's Lincoln Logs may have been a precedent for this one.
I typically avoid places with "gulch" in the name.

"Gulch" sounds like a gastrointestinal malfunction.

Dreamy location with those aspen trees. Having been raised in Colorado, I would love to live again in such an environment.

A humble log cabin is so much more charming than this grandiose thing. It would make a fine hotel.

The design of 3483 Daybreak Ridge Bachelor Gulch Colorado is to FLLW, as Colorado is to South Africa.

Roland Reisley's book doesn't mention street addresses---but I don't find a house looking like this one among those listed at the back of the book.

Nice looking Bauhaus-inflected model. The owners apparently went to the trouble of taking up the bluestone floor to install radiant heating. Sweet.

Nice house. The kitchen and bath updates fit in seamlessly.
The yearly tax rate of $21,532 is less than a one-bedroom apartment goes for in WeHo, which runs around $30K.

Although Wright’s design principles often become mangled as seen here in a sort of amateurish, Graycliff-meets-Richard Neutra-like superficiality, his ongoing attractiveness in American popular culture is evidenced by such persistent, opportunistic attempts to portray for a mass audience his architectural design genius on mainstream network television.

Heh-heh. Wow---Bill's back with images---in spades !

There must be a half dozen Simpson's episodes which include in the settings a Wrightian or Wright-influenced building---plus more MCM than you can
remember. Homer's long-lost wealthy brother (the car manufacturer, voiced by DannyDeVito) lives in something like a cross between Coonley and the
unbuilt McCormick extravaganza ... but in the opening shot, completely symmetrical ...
