The Greycliff Estate was designed and made by Frank Lloyd Wright on the cliffs of Lake Erie just South of Buffalo, NY for Isabelle Martin.  She was the wife of the famous Larkin Soap magnet Darwin Martin who’s house we visited last.  This is a panoramic view of the house made from four individual photographs merged together. The Main House is on the left center with its pond out front with running waterfall under the overhanging entrance.  The building to the right is the “Foster House” above the garage where Isabelle Martin’s daughter lived with her husband.  This “apartment” was way bigger than most peoples houses and had a lot of Frank Lloyd Wright’s characteristic cantilevered architecture.  It and the main house were connected by large Wright stone fences that solidified the design into a large “L” shape.
