Built in 1904, this house showcases the talents of one of America's premiere architects. Frank Lloyd Wright designed the home, which has a 100-foot covered arbor, a glass roof conservatory, and a classic horizontal streamlined design. In 2013 the home saw a $50 million restoration effort so it is even more stunning, and features long banded windows, pitched roofs, and distinctly over-hanging eaves. The Martin House is over 10,000-square feet and features Wright's "Prairie House" concept and is referred to as his "opus." Reservations are strongly required. The all-inclusive day tour includes a trolley ride to six of Wright's visionary designs around the Buffalo area, but is only available on select dates throughout the year.
