The Louis Penfield House, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and built in 1955, has had one owner and sits on a rise overlooking the Chagrin River. The 30 acre property also contains the last original building site and plans for Wright’s final residential commission, Riverrock, designed in 1959 and unbuilt. This completely restored Usonian home features a floating staircase and a 12’ floor-to-ceiling glass walled living room; offering a panoramic view of the distant bluffs of the Chagrin River, constructed of heavily textured concrete block w/deeply raked horizontal mortar. All of the Wright-designed furniture is included. The fully functioning radiant-floor heating system is fueled by one of two natural gas wells located on the property.
