Frank Lloyd Wright’s Graycliff Estate – Set high on a cliff with sweeping views over Lake Erie, Graycliff stands as an architectural jewel awaiting your discovery. Built between 1926 and 1929, the Graycliff estate was designed by the renowned American architect Frank Lloyd Wright for Isabelle R. Martin and her husband, Larkin Company executive Darwin D. Martin. Graycliff served as the Martin summer home from 1927 to the mid-1940s. The complex is set amidst eight and a half acres of rolling lawns and gardens also designed by Wright. Isabelle Martin had the greatest influence over Wright’s design, with her failing vision leading her to direct the architect to create structures full of sunlight and air. Wright fulfilled her wishes magnificently.
