With hundreds of Frank Lloyd Wright’s buildings completed around the nation, there’s no way to visit every single one of them without having to pay a pretty penny. Thankfully, the National Trust for Historic Preservation has made it easier for Wright fans to learn about one particular home of his, located in Alexandria, Virginia.
The organization recently unveiled a virtual tour of the Pope-Leighey House on their website, created through geographic mapping company Esri. The virtual tour shows a floor plan of the Usonian home, photos inside, and fun facts in each room.
One of these facts is that Wright, who was known for being very controlling of any modifications to his designs, allowed three deviations to the Pope-Leighey House: an armoire built into the bedroom closet, a lock box hidden under the vanity, and the vanity mirror.
Be sure to take the full tour below. (Note: The tour is best seen on a desktop computer rather than on mobile).
