    I absolutely love this home. Warmth infuses every room. It’s wonderful that updates have been made very carefully not to interrupt the original character.

    No one designs houses like FLW. As beautiful and modern as it was when it was built. This could happily be my forever home if I won the lottery!

    I grew up in a town of 11,000 in Iowa that had two Frank Lloyd Wright homes! The homes are in a class of their own!
    This one is stunning!!

  5. Beautiful house, beautiful setting.

  6. Ogden Dunes is a great place to live – not to nitpick, but they would never say they lived in Portage (I spent a big chunk of my childhood and vacations nearby in the Dunes)!

    Beautiful condition too. There are a lot (or were, a lot of been lost to McMansions) of houses by Chicago modernists in the dunes, especially to the east of here, even a Neutra house.

    It is amazing to me that this home was built 81 years ago and really looks like it could have been built yesterday! I love the sauna in the bathroom! I don’t really know a lot about architecture, but I’m learning a bit on this site! FLW really was a visionary! I don’t live too far from his Fallingwater design and may go in the next couple of weeks to take some photos.

    Although I really appreciate MCM’s artistic design, they’re not usually my cup of tea to live in. This one though…

    This home is amazing. It’s not my preferred style, but it’s wonderful to see it in mint condition. I love all of the windows and the trees.

    What a beauty! It was purchased around 1958 by John Peterson,who extended/restored/renovated the house in 1964. One of Wright’s apprentices,John Howe,was the architect for those changes.
