The estate, on a cliff overlooking Lake Erie, features sweeping views of Canada and a light, airy architectural style amidst 8.5 acres of grounds and gardens. It is an important example of Wright’s mid-career “Organic Style,” blending architecture with the natural landscape. Guided tours are available. Time: Allow 1 hour minimum.
