Frank Lloyd Wright Student-Designed Home Trapped in Time
This four-bedroom ranch home was designed by architect Mair Samuels, a student of Frank Lloyd Wright, whose influence on the home’s one-story structure can clearly be seen. Indoors, the home’s time-stamped 1950s heritage is still on display, from the patterned wallpaper and multicolored “brick” linoleum to the wood paneling and features like a scalloped bathroom sink.
Some of those original features, though, were custom-fashioned, like the custom-made Italian kitchen cabinets that may be so out of style, they’re back in style. And putting aside any cosmetic problems, there is plenty to love: “naturally insulating stone walls… slate floors over dual-zone radiant heat, slate roof …walls of closets.” The building may also become eligible for commercial use.
