Whidbey Island Oasis Getaway
Where else can you get 177′ of waterfront, island oasis and the feeling of complete privacy? This Whidbey Island home not only has a beautiful private beach but is also flanked by a green belt to the south. Located on West Beach Road, this house is removed from Oak Harbor’s noise but is close enough to drive in for dinner or drinks. This home was tastefully renovated by outdoor enthusiasts that wanted to bring the outside in. Expansive windows and double sliding doors provide easy access. You won’t miss the enjoyment of the sea’s sights and sounds while also providing a view of the beautiful flowers that cover this property’s spacious backyard. Frank Lloyd Wright would be impressed with the choice of natural sea colors that blend and harmonize with the seascape. https://divergentmba.wordpress.com/2012/04/23/designing-life-frank-lloyd-wright-architect/
Wright’s philosophy was materials are used simply in a way that enhances their innate character and optimizes their individual color, texture, and strength. One material is not disguised as another. The way a building comes together, how one material joins another; the very form of the building should be an expression of the nature of the materials used. In organic architecture, only a few materials are used, both inside and outside. A building should convey a sense of shelter, refuge, or protection against the elements. You will not not lack privacy or feel exposed and unprotected. This home is a prime example of Frank Lloyd Wright’s style and philosophy.
