The Louis Penfield House, 1955

Willoughby Hills, OH

$1,700,000

The Louis Penfield House is one of about 100 Usonian homes built nationally by Frank Lloyd Wright. Each design was site-specific to take advantage of the view and terrain. The typical Usonian floor plan included small entryways, narrow passages, large central fireplaces and floor-to-ceiling windows. The designs were also tailored to each individual client, which is why the Penfield House is unique among Wright designs. Louis Penfield was 6’8” tall; the home was designed to accommodate his tall stature.

Privately situated on 18.45 wooded acres with approximately 600 feet of Chagrin River frontage, the house is located across from Lake Metroparks’ Gully Brook Park, which
