This house and the one in Polo, IL look like the work of the same architect. The stone work is wonderful. The only thing: Whenever I see wallpaper, no matter what the pattern, I want to get my stripping tools out!

When I saw Westerville, OH I thought this had to be a house in Rush Creek Village, but it's not... but close.

We need a floor plan to make sense of it all, as some of the angles don't resolve very well, especially that 15 degree corner in a shower.

In the photo showing the front door from the inside ... the end of the stone wall on the right should have turned the corner or been considerably thickened ... As Mr. Wright often said, first take care of the terminals.

The poor, pinched LR fireplace looks almost like an afterthought. At any rate it's way under-scaled for the space. With an abundance of available stone, why wasn't it used, here, or are we supposed to admire the fact the roof seems to be self-supporting.

Rood, to the right of the front door, there is a mirror set into the wall. What you see is a reflection, not an extremely thin wall. Also, I believe the shower corner is more than 15 degrees, maybe 45. The photo must be a slight distortion. Notice how the circular drain has been made to look ellipsoidal.
