Click on EARTH lower left corner (not Street View) and zoom in. There appears to be a lot of construction going on there.


Both of the houses still shown standing are long gone ...

We were able to tour the home today. We parked in the next door church
parking lot and went through the door connected to the lot. We were
not obtrusive in any way to the neighborhood. I had seen the home from
a distance previously and was happy to be close and upfront today. It
looks like a coiling snake. The tour was given by Zach Rawling and
Sarah Levi (David's great granddaughter and FLW's great, great
granddaughter mentioned in the previous article). I was able to chat
with both individually. Sarah is actually staying in the home
currently and lived in Chicagoland for sometime. She is very excited
about the restoration and really liked what I had to share about ours.
When I talked to Zach he was very focused on the education piece that
the home could bring to the community through general tours and
school-age student tours. The foundation will also host dinners in the
home done in the tradition of FLW with live music from David & Gladys'
original Steinway piano. There were many unplanted new trees on the periphery of the home that will need planting soon. It was nice to see the whole home, go on the roof and also tour the guesthouse. We felt they were very welcoming. I am happy this beautiful home is being restored. Zach shared with me the current price of the restoration will be 5 million
for the home and over a million for the grounds. The views of the
mountains are priceless. It can be a scary proposition when a Wright home
goes on the market these days and am really pleased this great one is in the process of being saved.

Wow -- lotsa photos. Camelback Mountain is quite a sight in the glow of sunset. Nice to see the house free of its foliage, for a change.

Does the guest house date from the 'fifties ?

Last year at the FLWBC tour, copies of all drawings in the FLW Archive file for the David Wright house were in a bound folio in the guest house for visitor perusal. Among the drawings were plans and elevations dated pre-April 1959, with FLLW's initials, of the guest house. The drawings matched the as-built condition almost exactly.

The previous attribution of the guest house and its carport to John Howe appears to be in error.

Enlarge the slide show for good views of the houses. There's a pair of diameter lines centering on one of the round stepping stones, presumably marking the locus of the house's principal geometry. And another view, looking up at the living room window and trellis, shows corner "irons" like the ones Kevin was looking for, the other day, capturing joints in the wood siding above the glass . . .
