The Palmer House is a multilevel brick and cypress late period Frank Lloyd Wright house, the plan and design of which is based on the equilateral triangle. The house is sheltered by a long broad hipped roof with deep overhangs. The cantilever extending over the terrace is the most dramatic feature of the house. The open interior is fitted with Wright-designed furniture and built-in cabinetry. The Palmer house exemplifies Wright's open, American organic architecture in which all parts are related to the whole and are linked to the environment in an adaptation of form to nature.

In addition to the main house, there is a tea house located on the 2 acres of woodland surrounding the home. The Tea House includes a small kitchen and a bathroom. The Tea House is not available as a separate rental and is not available during the winter months. The Tea House is included with the rental of the Palmer House.

During your stay, please enjoy complementary tea and coffee, high thread count sheets, feather and non-feather pillows and organic shampoo and conditioner. We are committed to greening the earth and only use organic cleaning products, hand soaps, dish detergent, and laundry soap. Please be advised that there is no air-conditioning. Because the floors are concrete, the roof blocks direct sun, and the house is surrounded by very large trees, the house stays relatively cool.

About The Owner

We currently live in San Francisco and purchased the house in March 2009. Jeffrey Schox, who is a San Francisco patent attorney, spends several weeks a year in Ann Arbor. When he is not in Ann Arbor, the Palmer House will be available for rent as a guest house and as a meeting location. Kathryn is a yoga teacher and plans to offer both public and private classes in the house a few times a year. Jeff's parents, Sue and Gary Cox are the caretakers of the house.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose Angell

We both graduated from the University of Michigan and while attending school, frequently went on long walks or runs with the Palmer House as our destination. Jeffrey has been a fan of Frank Lloyd Wright since an early age growing up outside of Detroit and Kathryn became a fan while attending the Art Institute of Chicago and exploring the suburbs of Chicago.

Amazing house and hosts

  • 5 of 5

We really loved staying at the Palmerhouse. We can not recommend this place enough. Our host was truly wonderful. When we came we got a informative guided tour of the house and property. Everything we needed was provided for in the house. Thank you so much for letting people like us come and stay!

There are no words...

What a beautiful unique experience. No tv or radio needed. Just the beauty and peace of this exquisite property and everything to discover about it. My husband and I had such an amazing experience living on this property. There are truly no words to express the depth of experience we had. It is a delight to the senses and the Soul.
