We have visited several FLW houses. This was the smallest. Size didn't matter because the design was awesome. Only two flaws with this house. Two of the openings, one in the kitchen and one in the bathroom that you had to turn sideways to get through. Other than that we loved the design.

For those interested in architecture, particularly of Frank Lloyd Wright, this house is a most see. It is a hidden treasure in the St. Louis suburb of Kirkwood. The tour is interesting and describes the history and unique features of the house. Good for family and friends. Reservations are required.

This is a wonderful example of Frank Lloyd Wright's work. Most of the interior of the house is original!! I understand that the people who had it built did not cook much, so the kitchen looks like it did when it was new! You have to make a reservation to tour it, it is small, so only a few people...

The was my first Frank Lloyd Wright home to visit, and I hope not my last. The tour is kept to a small number (around 10 people), so you have a quality tour. The guide was very knowledgeable about the house, and our party of 3 enjoyed it immensely. The home is very unique and ahead of it's time. The... More

We enjoyed this private tour. Our goal is to see all the public Frank Lloyd Wright houses in the US. This house did not disappoint! The docent, a retired architect was knowledgeable, engaging and you could tell he loved volunteering at this house. I keep wanting to see more from Frank. I don't always agree with his furniture choice but... More

I've toured this home several times. Volunteer tour guides are very knowledgable and the home has lots of oddities that only Wright could do. There is only one 90 angle in the entire home and you can try to find it. The beds are also very odd shapes and I don't know how you would find sheets for them. Can't... More

This house was designed and built by Frank Lloyd Wright in the middle of the 20th century. It is a fascinating house to visit. I cannot believe someone actually lived here for many years. The house was custom built for the owners.

This is a house that is closed up and will let only small group go thru. When house is not open it is seal up. Beware if you have allergies they will not like this place.
