Spring House designed by Frank Lloyd Wright
Last month I had the opportunity to tour the only private residence in Florida designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and built during his lifetime. This house is located just about a mile from where I live. Mr. Wright completed the plans in 1952 for George and Clifton Lewis and their family and construction of the house was finished in 1954. Frank Lloyd Wright died in 1959, having never visited the property. The house is in the process of being restored to its former glory after falling into disrepair and they are doing a wonderful job. You can read more about the history of this beautiful house and fundraising efforts to restore it by visiting the Spring House Institute website here. I will show pictures of the inside tomorrow.
Linking up with WEDNESDAY AROUND THE WORLD.
