Sandusky house description

The GLASS HOUSE was designed by an assocaite of Frank Lloyd Wright (FLW) and was built in 1960. It is a UNIQUE example of his classic architecture and use of 'core' living space. The large picture windows across the front and rear allow an unobstructed view of the lake and the bay. The mahogonay wood walls and interior finish is an exceptional example of FLW's style and simplicity. It is classic FLW Style with Cedar Ceilings and large glass picture windows in the front and in the rear of the living area. The front deck provides a panoramic view of the lake with a relaxing area to enjoy the moment.
Recent improvements include: Flat Screen TV with sound system, DVR-TV, DVD, VCR, NetFlix and BLU-RAY Player. A small kitchen and refrigerator were added to the utility room for entertaining on the brick patio. 3 Picnic tables and patio furniture allow the full use of the outside rear yard and ample areas for children and games.

Two bedrooms are located on the upper floor along with an OPEN living area, kitchen, dining area and two decks. The Lower Level has two bedrooms and a sitting/office area with a second TV for more veersatility in entertainment. Internet is also provided without charge at the desk.

The bocce ball set is available for adults, as well as, croquet. Twelve (12) outdoor chairs, 3 picnic tables, and Three unbrellas are available for the outside fun. Beach toys are stored in the shed for use by kids.

The view of the water and beach will allow your family to enjoy a unique experience on Lake Erie and don't forget the islands. You will be limited only by your time and your creativity in enjoying the area.

                  THE GLASS HOUSE WAS DESIGNED BY AN ASSOCIATE OF FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT AND BUILT IN 1960. IT HAS ALL THE CHARM AND FEATURES OF HIS CLASSIC ARCHITECTURE WHICH MAKES THE MOST OF THE PANORAMIC VIEWS OF THE LAKE AND BAY. THREE BATHROOMS WERE COMPLETELY REDONE, BUT THE BASIC DESIGN OF THE HOUSE IS THE SAME. AN EXCEPTIONAL EXAMPLE OF FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT'S DESIGN WITH THE LIVING AREA ON THE SECOND FLOOR.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1960

                  About the owner: The 'Glass House' was purchased by my family in 1960. It has been redecorated and upgraded over the years. The home fronts on Lake Erie and the back is on Sandusky Bay. A huge back yard for croquet, bocci ball, badminton, soccer, fishin in the bay, and a second beach with picnic table. The large brick patio and gas grille can accomodate all of your family.

                  Why the Owner Chose Sandusky:
                  My family bought the 'Glass House' on Cedar Point because it was close to Columbus, Ohio (2 hours drive) and easily reachable for all of our friends from Columbus, Cleveland, Toledo, and Michigan.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The 'Glass House' is unique! The Front and back are completely Glass picture windows. The front view is of Lake Erie and the Back views the Sandusky Bay, large back yard, and places for children to play games. Beach toys, bocci ball, badminton, and beach chairs are on site. This year we installed a new sound system, dvd, dvr, speakers and more cable stations for guests. Windows in front and rear. The Cedar Point Amusement Park is less than a mile to the West and the Lighthouse is visible at night along with the Park lights. Fireworks are on Saturday. Ches' Francois_ is a 5 Star restaurant located in lovely downtown Vermillion which has exceptional dining on the Vermillion River.
