>Last time on Architecture Wednesday, I showed you the Boxcar Guesthouse, one of the smallest ever. Now, for something a little more extravagant.
Kaweah Falls is a modern rustic retreat home designed by Frank Lloyd Wright’s student Frank Robert. It’s located at the base of the Sequoia National Park, the perfect getaway for nature lovers, hikers, kayakers and so on. The main feature of this spectacular 3,000 square foot home is a river running through it–right under the dining room. It bridges to a private island with a sandy beach and a year round active waterfall. The house features 4 bedrooms, 4 full baths, 2 kitchens plus several private decks and porches all with amazing river views. There is also a detached 2 car garage with an office, deck, and a view of the river. This amazing house is an ideal retreat for those who are ready to escape the hassles of the city.
For those interested, we have a website for Kaweah Falls that has a YouTube video showing the water flowing under the house, more pictures and info about the history/renovation. [HERE]
