Beautifully cared-for home in a residential section of Grand Rapids. Frank Lloyd Wright devotees should make the trip. Furniture and decor is functional and in great condition. Not a lot of parking available, but worth a little walk.

The house was closed when we visited, but walked the grounds and it is beautiful. Frank Lloyd Wright homes are all magnificent.
