There are 1700 concrete blocks in 11 different shapes. Most of the home has custom furniture that suits each room. It has a dramatic 2 sided fireplace which was a favorite of Wright. The Tracy house stands out as an American classic. Check out that view. Breathtaking.
Seattle dreaming….. On such a sunny day.

Frank Lloyd Wright is my absolute favorite architect. I find his Tracy house one of the most intriguing and not just because it’s in Seattle! The Tracy home overlooks Puget Sound. It is made entirely of exposed concrete blocks. It was built in 1955 for Bill and Elizabeth Tracy. It’s a single story home that has 1150 square feet. Wright gave particular attention to the sun, views and privacy when positioning a house. Wright’s signature red tile is located on the front porch.
