A river runs through it. Through the home, under the dining room’s glass-bottom floor, to be exact. Designed originally in the 1940’s by one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s students, Frank Robert, the second owners of the home built the addition which bridged the home over the Kaweah river. Kaweah Falls is an amazing home, true to Wright’s idea of natural settings and nurturing home being fluid as a property. And at Kaweah, the ‘fluid’ is literally part of the home. According to the promotional video on Youtube, the home is now being offered as a vacation rental.
With California’s Sequoia forest as your backyard, you have access to miles and miles of hiking trails, waterfalls, mountain climbing, cross-country skiing, horseback riding and the world renowned Sequoia trees. The fork of the Kaweah River that runs alongside the home offers seasonal white water rafting and kayaking, fishing, swimming, and bird watching. In the home, there are four private living spaces for a total of 3,000+ sq/ft with 4 bedrooms, 4 full baths, 2 kitchens plus several private decks and porches all with amazing river views. There is a detached 2 car garage with an office, deck, and a view of the river.
Not only available as a rental, but could be yours for just under $2 million. While not exactly a small chunk of change, the home definitely seems for every penny. Brilliant modern design married with beautiful landscaping and breathtaking natural forest surroundings, Kaweah Falls is a property where Adam & Eve would have rolled out a Welcome mat.
