Frank Lloyd Wright, founder of the Prairie Style school worked out of Chicago. But his influence spread across all across the nation, and indeed into Europe as well. This beautiful, single story home expands across its suburban California site, obviously inspired by Wright, but also well adapted to the California climate and light. Father and son team, Frank and Carl Wolfe. Peter Col, the client, made his fortune in the grocery business and clearly knew how to spend his well-gotten gains in a stylish and comfortable manner. The house boasts fine details throughout. In particular it has lovely leaded glass windows and built-in furniture in the Living and Dining rooms.
