“Isabel Roberts was a member of Wright’s design team and in 1908 she had this house built at 603 Edgewood Place. It has undergone two renovations in 1922 William Drummond did the first remodeling. He replaced the stucco exterior with brick and moved the door. The second update was done in 1958 by Wright himself who, among other things, moved the door back to it’s original location. The home was plagued by leaks but with a tree growing through the middle of it I think your gonna have problems. And like all of Wrights River Forest homes this home is in the historic district.”

See you point looking at it in cyberspace, but late at night, in the “right frame of mind”, up close, viewing its presence, feelings from ancient memories begin to surface.
That’s a nice house but the Ennis house in LA has long been my favorite since I first viewed in in the 60s. It seemed very Egyptian late at night. Pepe Polyp
The Ennis house is interesting, but looks too institutional for my tastes.
