S.150 – Isabel Roberts Residence, 603 Edgewood Place, River Forest, Illinois
S.394 – Warren Scott remodeling
Photographed on May 17, 2012. This 1908 home for Wright’s secretary was originally stucco, but brick was added in the 1920s. It was remodeled by Wright in 1955 for then-owner Warren Scott to enclose a porch and add copper roofing (as well as numerous interior renovations). That enclosure, shown in the third photograph, brought an elm tree “into” the house (the porch had been built with the tree popping through the floor and roof, but it was still open-air. That tree was removed in 2015.
