Frank Lloyd Wright, Seamour Shavin House

The Seamour Shavin House is the only Frank Lloyd Wright structure in the state of Tennessee.  We made a quick stop here on our way home from Chattanooga.  It is a private residence so this is as far as I trespassed.

The house was commissioned  in 1949 and completed in 1952.  Both the exterior and interior of the house use primarily crab orchard stone and treated Louisiana cypress wood. The stonework is reminiscent of Fallingwater. The house is sits on top of a hill to take advantage of the view of the Tennessee River and Lookout Mountain.
