This a view of the Garage/Apartment area of the Greycliff Estate by Frank Lloyd Wright on Lake Erie South of Buffalo. This section was connected to the main part of the house by a few walls that were at a right angle. They made an “apartment” over the three car garage/ carriage house there that was bigger than most people’s homes.  In this one area, Isabelle Martin allowed Frank Lloyd Wright to be more himself and use cantilevered overhangs and wide horizontal eves as he normally did.  This Foster House, where the daughter and son in law of the Martins lived, is therefore more typical of Frank Lloyd Wright. I will show several views from different angles so you can see the soaring roofs and wide eves and cantilevered balconies not really present in the Main Greycliff house section:

 Here you can see how close it is to the main Greycliff House:
