William Kaeser and William Wesley Peters were college classmates.

Bill and his wife were often dinner guests at both Taliesin and Taliesin West. They were also two of the few "outsiders" invited to attend the wedding of Wes and the second Svetlana.

Fanciness should not in itself be a negative, but get a load of the balustrade! Oy!

Yes, the outside is beautiful, but the white interior is overwhelming. I'm guessing that the bones of the building are good so, if you had the money, get rid of all of that white stuff & return it to what the architect (hopefully) intended.

One sees what might be painted pecky cypress exterior trim. Try stripping that !

May I assume that the stair baluster is not original to the house ?
