4320 Drake Rd. | Cincinnati | 45243
Architecture: Charles Gwathmey

Built 1980; 5 bedroom, 7 bath, 7,000 square feet

This one-of-a-kind house, winner of a national AIA honor award in 1984, is situated on 6.5 private acres in an elegant Cincinnati neighborhood. A New York Times article said the house was a “modernist villa” whose “cool, white lines” create “an image of crisp modernism” and observed that it also has a “sense of great assurance” that “places this house firmly in the tradition of major country villas” and “seems designed to contain lives that are lived grandly, but with discipline and taste.”
