Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live in a home designed by American architect, Frank Lloyd Wright? The best-known homes might be out of reach for most of us (Wright’s Cooke House in Virginia Beach is on the market for about $3M). But there are plenty of now-so-well known homes designed by the prolific architect that are now vacation rental homes. They might be uniquely “Wright” for your vacation, or at least a nightly rental.
It seems like it would be amazing to spend a night or even a vacation in a home designed by the iconic American architect. In his design treatment, Wright recognized and respected the natural beauty specific to a location. From the East Coast to Hawaii, Wright’s homes touch the landscape with his unique design sense of integration. He wove the natural beauty of each location into the design of the structure, creating what appears to be a unity between nature and home. The effect of his work is truly remarkable.
Wright Vacation Rental Homes
In an article recently published by Curbed, it is suggested that vacationers add some architecture to their vacation. Of course there are some fairly weighty price tags associated with a getaway like this, including a $450 cleaning fee for one-time housekeeping during a 7-day stay. But there are certain aesthetic perks that probably outweigh the hefty price. It should be noted that Laundry facilities and detergents are provided in the home for guests to use. Additional housekeeping services can be purchased for a fee.
Again, it’s about architecture and aesthetics. Wright’s organic architectural design principles allow natural light into the homes by virtue of skylights and panoramic windows that also invite natural ventilation.
