Did you know that there is a Frank Lloyd Wright house here in Carmel-by-the-Sea? It is a very distinctive oceanfront home. Better known as the Clinton Walker Residence, it was built in 1948 of stone with a copper roof and hexagon-based floor plan. A central chimney bears the weight of the roof which allows for almost unbroken casement windows on the ocean side.
I have always wanted to go inside, but it is a private residence so no tours are allowed, unfortunately. However, I've walked the little beach to its north and, at low tide, climbed around the ocean side looking for shells.
It was the location of a movie in 1959, "A Summer Place" (ostensibly on the East Coast) which actually mentions the fact that it was a Frank Lloyd Wright house.
SO I AM THANKFUL THAT THIS BEAUTIFUL OCEANFRONT HOME IS STILL THERE FOR PEOPLE TO SEE AS THEY WALK OR DRIVE ALONG SCENIC ROAD AT THE PACIFIC OCEAN.
