Frank Lloyd Wright is the acknowledged master of the prairie home, one of the few indigenous American styles. The Fall Creek is an update of that early 1900s style. Its characteristic features include a hipped, low-pitched roof that extends out in deeply overhanging eaves, and a front facade that emphasizes horizontal lines.

The high-ceilinged entry porch extends out to the right, creating a great location for a porch swing or suite of wicker furniture. Inside, natural light spills into the entry through slender sidelights that flank the door.
Double doors on the right open into a room that could be furnished as either a dining room or parlor. A pocket door at the rear slides open to access the kitchen and nook at the heart of the home.
The great room in the home’s center is in sync with the lifestyle preferences of contemporary families. Standing at the kitchen sink you are next to the nook and can look out across the long raised eating bar into a great room with a fireplace. Work surfaces are ample, appliances are built in, and a roomy pantry nestles into one corner. A door in the nook opens onto a rambling, partially covered patio.
Bathrooms are plentiful. A small one is just inside the entry. The larger one to the right has a shower and is convenient to the guest suite, utility room and garage. More are in the bedroom wing, where two bedrooms share one, and the owners’ suite has a private bathroom with two vanities and a large walk-in closet. The suite also has its own direct patio access.
Doors to the three-car garage open on the right side of the Fall Creek, so they aren’t visible from the front.
