Graycliff - 2014 Photos

Photos taken November 2014

Facade








Note the see-through feature - seeing lake Erie through the living room glass walls



Creo-Dipt shingles which, according to Patrick Mahoney, AIA,  Martin suggested to Wright after having seen an ad in the one of his favorite journals, Better Homes & Gardens.




Rain garden





















The natural iron stains were foreseen by Wright ... The photo below is of the rain garden around the corner of the house:



Note second floor cantilevered porch next to Martin's bedroom ... Below his bedroom is the fern room ... To the left of the fern room is the rain garden/bioswill pictured below:



The fern room is the backdrop for the rain garden/bioswill below the cantilevered porch


Rear of the house


The cantilevered porch and the  rain garden illustrated in the above photo are at the right of this photo



Iron stains were anticipated by Wright
