Designed by architect William Hunt, the residence offers striking similarities to the work of Frank Lloyd Wright. Specific factors reminiscent of Wright’s work include the way the home exists in complete harmony with its surrounding site, using a natural palette of slate, fieldstone, wood, and glass to help blend the architecture with the natural landscape seamlessly. The contemporary lines of the form of the home are another factor that evokes Wright.
