The Bernard Schwartz House known as Still Bend is Frank Lloyd Wright's built version of his Life Magazine "Dream House" design from 1938. The house is on the East Twin River about a mile from Lake Michigan. Frank Lloyd Wright wrote in Life Magazine about the plan, “American...family life is unlike any other in the world and I think this plan recognizes it for pretty much what it is — a little private club — with special privacies, ultra conveniences and style all"
The 4 bedrooms 2 1/2 bath LIFE Magazine Dream house is yours to live in as if it were your own. Whether it’s two days or two weeks, you will experience the genius of Frank Lloyd Wright in a way that a typical tour cannot provide. Imagine waking up in this magical space and watching the sun project an amazing light show on the red brick walls and red tidewater Cypress interior through the Wright designed clerestory windows. Spend time sitting in the 63 foot long living room and reading a vintage novel pulled from the shelves in the library or go down to the dock on the river to watch a sand hill crane land with a splash. Every turn will reveal a new detail that will reaffirm Wright's genius. Spend a quite evening around the fireplace and marvel at the thought that you are living in one of Frank Lloyd Wright's masterpieces!
Experience Frank Lloyd Wright’s vision for how the average American Family could live. Relax, slow down and let Wright’s genius unfold before you in a manner that is not possible on a typical house tour.
The brilliance of Frank Lloyd Wright’s vision can only be experienced fully by living in one of his creations. There is something magical almost spiritual about being in a Wright space that leaves one transformed.
