The house has a certain elegance and style ... but I agree with Roderick. The one story wing in particular gives the appearance of an afterthought, something not quite digestible.

It might not be pleasant to stand near the three-story rubble-stone fireplace mass, either ... during an earthquake. All the King's horses and all the King's men .... would have a hard time picking up the pieces.


Or finding your body underneath the rubble pile. Concur on the afterthought idea of the bedroom wing; reminiscent of Wright and his "tadpole" usonians, but there was never the same level of visual disassociation seen here.
