DESCRIPTION

“The house, commissioned by William and Mary Palmer in 1950, was designed by Wright's own hand. It is perhaps the finest of his late houses. The 2,000 square-foot home with its collection of Wright-designed furniture, the Teahouse, and the two-acre beautiful sylvan setting is Ann Arbor's most architecturally significant residence.

The strong organic aspects of the house are manifested in its hillside orientation, exquisite red cypress and brickwork, and the treed views from every room. Complementing the natural elements is the bold triangular geometry of the home: its signature cantilevered overhang, the play of angles (there are no 90 degree corners), and Wright's creation of intimate and open spaces. Building upon the exceptional display of architectural design detail and craftsmanship, the house has been meticulously cared for by both the original and new owners.

In addition to the main house, there is a tea house located on the 2 acres of woodland surrounding the home. The tea house includes a working fireplace, a small kitchen and a bathroom with a shower-over-the toilet.

During your stay, please enjoy complementary tea and coffee, high thread count sheets, feather and non-feather pillows and organic shampoo and conditioner.  The Palmer House is committed to greening the earth and only use organic cleaning products, hand soaps, dish detergent, and laundry soap. Please be advised that there is no air-conditioning (the floors are concrete, the roof blocks direct sun, and the house is surrounded by very large trees and thus the house remains cool).” flwpalmerhouse.com
