Wright designed almost every aspect of this estate, which reflects his Usonian architectural style - from his signature red tile mounted on an outside wall, to furnishings throughout the house. Today, mature trees dot the property, and a long flight of stairs leads to a boathouse.
In May 2017, this structure received a $200,000 restoration, making this one of only five Wright-designed boathouses and the only one in its original condition. More than 6,000 bricks were restored during the project. In addition to the boat launch 'room' the small brick building features an expansive deck that overlooks the Wapsipinicon River. There's also fireplace and a tiny kitchen area as well as sleep and lounging quarters.
