Notice that William P. Boswell home in Indian Hill Ohio is still on the market. I'm afraid I've grown very fond of this home based on the pictures presented in the "Wright on the Market" section of the site. Does anyone know what the owner is listing the home for? No price showing. Also, where is Indian Hills Ohio??

thanks.

Pdean.

Indian Hill, Ohio is northeast suburban Cincinnati. Until I was in the fourth grade, I grew up several miles from there. Indian Hills is extremely beautiful.

I lived in the Cincinnati area in the early 80s. At the time, Indian Hill was a wealthy, established suburb with a top rated school district. Many business owners, doctors and P&G top execs lived there. The estates are beautiful, and probably expensive to maintain, so I doubt the character of the neighborhood has changed much with the passage of time.

The refurbishing of this home is very nice. The kitchen, although altered, is beautiful, but I wonder about lining the family up facing the appliances like a diner. This kitchen was featured in a kitchen magazine last fall.



Question is, the ceilings throughout the house appear very white in color on the photos. I would imagine that FLLW would have specified more of an eggshell color, lending a much more gentle and warm feeling to the spaces below. Has anyone seen this house, and are the ceilings pure white? If so, did Wright ever specify pure white for his interiors?

Very good observation Doug. I had to go back and take another look at the photos after reading your comments. Every thing I've ever read about FLW indicates that he favored natural colors in wood staining and paints. Those ceilings are anything but natural. Wouldn't this type of restoration have a negative impact on the home's value?

I understand celing colors were supposed to be a "buff" color.....whatever that is. Also, it is supposed to have a sand texture. I assume sand is mixed in with the paint.

FYI-



Buff is a shade of yellowish/gold, a warm color with hints of brown.



Hope that helps.
