A beautiful home and I said after visiting several Frank Lloyd Wright homes this appeared to look and feel like one of them. The combination of woods,ceramic, and slate were outstanding. Light played the colors of the home to make it feel luxurious.
We danced in and used the large project room with many tables for coloring,painting, as a train room and marble race room. The home is off the beaten track so it is private, very warm and very comfortable. We wanted for nothing....the windows bring in beautiful sunshine but the home is placed so that the heat of the day sun is offset and not direct.
We were 5 adults and twins aged 3 1/2. Evenings were cool so we didn't use the air conditioner much just the large fan in the living room.
Beds with ceiling fans were plentiful. Plenty of space inside for each person to find personal space when they needed it and we used the deck and grill daily.
We found many spring-fed Lakes within 20 miles to swim: Clear Lake, Pipe, O'Dalles in the International Park off Hiway 8, and Balsam but didn't get to all of those that surround the area and there are plenty!
From this experience, I decided to buy a small sailing boat because the winds on Clear Lake made me think I could easily bring one along and teach the grandchildren.
The towns closeby offered shopping with unusual gifts, groceries, places to eat. We went to the Turtle Lake Casino to eat once otherwise we communed with each other over meals at the large table in the dining area.
The layout of the house works well with groups. Three bathrooms were perfect for showers and tub baths...we had plenty of hot water. The loft and one of the bedrooms upstairs became the twins and their parents hangout.
I am so glad to have found this home....you will be amazed at its beauty.
