Cedric G. and Patricia Neils Boulter House
Frank Lloyd Wright, 1954
Designed for two Classics scholars in 1954 and completed in 1956, the Boulter House is 2,500-sq.- ft. two-story Usonian style home that sits atop a steeply sloping site in the Cincinnati neighborhood of Clifton. Mrs. Boulter was the daughter of Henry J. Neils, whose Minneapolis residence Wright designed in 1949. Resembling a ship, the home is made of African and Philippine mahogany, Doulgas fir, concrete block, and glass. The two-story solar hemicycle features a 28-ft.-long great room wrapped on three sides with 10-ft. tall windows. The kitchen work space is a modern marvel of efficiency with room for luxury appliances. Marked on a fourfoot module, the home’s original four bedrooms are only 98-sq.-ft. each, another nod to its nautical imagery. An addition to the home in 1958 provided a playroom for the Boulter’s two sons and was later converted to a spacious master suite. In 1990, the home’s carport was enclosed and adjoined to the main house under the oversight of Taliesin trained architect Benjamin Dombar. Later sensitive updates to the master bath and dining room were designed by architect Chris Magee.
