Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright disciple Herb DeLevie, this midcentury gem is full of quirky details. The Max & Arlyne Hurwitz House sits just outside of downtown in Madison, Wisconsin, on a tree-lined plot of land.
DeLevie, a student of Wright’s at Taliesin, designed the four-bedroom, three-bathroom home in 1966, and it’s filled with striking features like a giant stone fireplace and angled walls, all sorts of nooks, plus amenities like a sauna and wet bar. The house opens into an entryway framed by 15-foot double doors. Inside, the home has an open-plan layout with split levels connected by multiple staircases.
Just off the kitchen, the dining room is framed by 18-foot-high windows. Meanwhile, even more light pours into the master suite, which gets its own sunroom. At one point in time, the house included an indoor pool, which has since been covered and transformed into another sun-filled room where the ladder arms still stick out of the middle of the floor. We told you it was quirky.
