What we like about this property

The brilliance of Frank Lloyd Wright’s work is best experienced by actually living in one of his creations, and this private vacation home gives you that exceedingly rare privilege. Once chosen as a LIFE magazine ‘Dream House’, we couldn’t agree with that sentiment more! We love the expressive signature style and the enduring appeal of his revolutionary talent.

 

Description

Originally referred to as “Still Bend” due to it’s location on the east Twin River, this sublimely constructed home in Two Rivers Wisconsin is beautifully executed and preserved and an exhilarating example of Usonian design that was to be Wright’s signature concept and style.

Begun at a highly productive period late in his life and completed in the spring of 1940, the house was commissioned by a local businessman and based on a LIFE magazine article entitled “Dream Houses.” 

Often thought of as exclusive and inaccessible due to Wright’s reputation as one of the world’s architectural luminaries, his real intention was to design affordable and accessible middle class homes with an organic approach firmly rooted to the landscape and in close relationship to nature. 

Composed of brick, cypress and polished concrete, the house is laid out in his typical horizontal grid pattern with interconnecting lines and spaces, a flat roof with jutting overhangs and ribbons of clerestory windows. The elevated living space features an interior balcony overlooking the main room with clever built-in furnishings and seating and a fireplace to encourage a connection to the interiors and each other. The focal point of the house, it’s flooded with natural light from banks of floor to ceiling windows overlooking the river. Spare and almost zen like, the burnished colors and use of natural and recessed light add drama to what is already an exhilirating but elegantly understated space.  

The dining area and utilitarian kitchen were designed much like the smallish bedrooms were, as places of modest design to encourage engaging with the rest of the property. 

Outside there is ample room to enjoy nature with flat grassy areas along the river, outdoor dining and a private dock to try your hand at fishing.

Widely featured in the press throughout the years, this exceptional vacation home rental provides a unique opportunity and exclusive access to the visionary design and lasting legacy of Frank Lloyd Wright.   

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Wifi throughout with TV and a collection of DVDs, games, books, yard games. Housekeeping and laundry facilities. Private parking  

AROUND

The small town of Two Rivers is a slice of Americana that perfectly complements Wright’s Usonian prairie aesthetics. A historic fishing town positioned at the confluence of the Mishicott and Neshota rivers on Lake Michigan, it’s well preserved and walkable with quirky museums, a bustling town square, repurposed old saloons and historic buildings as well as the thriving Rogers Street waterfront fishing village. Neshotah Beach and Point Beach State Park are great spots to enjoy sand beaches, hiking trails and natural play areas.

LOCATION

Twin Rivers, Wisconsin. Nearest Airport: Austin Stauble Airport-Green Bay (40 miles) 

BEST TIME TO VISIT: Late Spring through Fall are milder than many part of Wisconsin with cold snowy winters that are perfect for gathering around the fireplace

    Nice property to call home in sleepy town of Two Rivers, Wisconsin. Although, we had some issues with hot water over our two nights…

    Stunning. We spent four days there during Xmas. My then 6 year old still speaks of it. She is 10 now and I believe it really fostered a love of art and attention to detail. We played board games, played in the snow , read and cooked. Unforgettable .
