Edward H. Cheney House|
520 N. East Avenue
Designed by architect Frank Lloyd Wright.
(This is a private residence and does not offer tours.)
|Wright's design of this residence for electrical engineer Edwin Cheney is a superb brick house with the living and sleeping rooms all on one floor under a single broad hip roof (reminiscent of the design Heurtley House.) Here, however, there is a less monumental and more intimate quality to the house partly because it is not raised a full story off the ground, and partly because of the way its windows are nestled in between the wide eaves of the roof and the substantial stone sill that girdles the house. Take a another look.|
