The William and Mary Palmer House

Most Ann Arbor residents have a vague notion that a Frank Lloyd Write house exists somewhere in town but none seem to know of its exact location. When Kate's uncle was in town a couple weeks ago we decided to figure it out once and for all.

It's called the William and Mary Palmer House, and we found it waiting patiently, nestled under mature pines, at the end of Orchard Hills Drive, a long residential dirt road off Geddes Ave (just East of the Arb). It's a classic Usonian example, with a long cantilver roof, unusually shallow carport, and a quirky triangular layout. During our research we found that it's available for rent.
