The house, which sits on 80 acres of farmland, had to be livable and comfortable in a modern setting without eliminating features designed by one of America’s most well-known architects.

Dyson was rewarded with an Award of Excel- lence for Historic Restoration from the Sierra Valley Chapter of the American Institute of Architects. Paul M. Pratt, president of the Sierra Valley Chapter of the American Institute of Architects, voiced delight that a Frank Lloyd Wright home had been beautifully restored. “Any proposal to restore the work of this great architect should be celebrated and his effort on a significant example of Wright’s late domestic work was accomplished with sensitivity and skill,” Pratt said.
