This Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired home brings the prairie to Florida


Florida's swampy and wet climate is about as far from the prairie as you can get, but that doesn't mean we can't appreciate the work of Frank Lloyd Wright. That legendary architect's Midwestern architecture is the inspiration for this lakefront home in Winter Garden.

The Prairie Style kept in mind Wright's love of harmoniously existing with nature, featuring large windows to take in the endless expanses of land that characterize the center of the country. Fittingly, this home is surrounded on three sides by farmland and nestled against a lake, with all of it visible from the home's impressive windows. The orange groves surrounding the farm are a testament to the owners, Quinton & Lori Roe. Mr. Roe is the CEO of William G. Roe & Sons, a citrus company whose wares can be found throughout Florida supermarkets.

If all that arable land wasn't enough of the prairie for you, the home comes with a basement and storm cellar.

The 7,947 square foot home boasts five bedrooms and more than five bathrooms. It's represented by Rick Hemenway with Crosby & Associates. They are asking $2.5 million.
