Visiting the Cook House in Virginia Beach

I had the pleasure of visiting Frank Lloyd Wright's Cook House in Virginia Beach two weeks ago. This house was built in the late 1950's, and updated with new appliances and air conditioning in the 1980's under new owners. These owners are now selling the house. If you have $3.1 million it is yours! I was only able to spend a few minutes at the house due to the fact that the owner was showing it later in the day, but she did graciously let me in to look around briefly, and I took some pictures of the exterior.

The house is on a great site and has a wonderful view of the back bay behind. Unfortunately someone is building a very large house close by next door. Mostly, though, the landscaping provides a nice sense of privacy.
