A Frank Lloyd Wright Home In Michigan You Can Stay In
It's on the National Register of Historic Places. It's also a Frank Lloyd Wright dwelling and now you can stay there.
Completed in 1950 for William and Mary Palmer, the two-acre property features a three-bedroom main house—with its prowlike, triangular cantilever—and an adjacent tea house.
Designed by Wright, the home was built after Wright’s death by his apprentice, John H. Howe, in 1959.
The main home with its open and airy interiors, has original furniture designed by Wright and built-in cabinetry.
Located at 227 Orchard Hills Drive in Ann Arbor, The Palmer House is near an arboretum on the hillside of a two-acre property. The home is built from Tidewater Red Cypress and Cranbrook brick.
Equilateral triangles are a recurring design element and the house employs very few right angles, from the hexagonal beds to an unconventional shower.
Named The Palmer House after the original owners, William Palmer and his wife Mary, they had the place built in 1950. They lived in the house from 1950-2009.
The Palmer House is one of Wright's last residential masterpieces. The home, which can now be rented for the first time, offers an unforgettable artistic and sensory experience.
Building upon the exceptional display of architectural design detail and craftsmanship, the house has been meticulously cared for by both the original and new owners.
Frank Lloyd Wright (June 8, 1867 - April 9, 1959) was an architect, interior designer, writer, and educator. Known as America's greatest architect, Wright designed more than 1,000 projects that resulted in more than 500 completed works.
Wright designed the Palmer House when he was 83 years old. During the same time, he was creating the Guggenheim Museum, one of the 20th century's most important architectural landmarks.
