This house was designed as a response to Nathan Moore's request for a house built in the English half-timber style.
"On Christmas Day 1922, a fire broke out in the home and destroyed the second and third floors. Wright was commissioned by Moore to rebuild the house, making a number of significant modifications. The result is a quite unconventional Tudor house, with details reminiscent of Wright's recent work at the Imperial Hotel, Midway Gardens, and the California textile block houses."
"In 1923 two dormer windows and a Gothic bay were added to add to the formally restrained north facade that faces the street"
"The house combines elements of the Prairie and Tudor styles, as well as the Architect's early-1920's California Romanza styles"
