I was in Memphis a few months ago and snapped shots of this beautiful house. It is located at 5715 Sycamore Grove in East Memphis. The architect is E. Fay Jones, an apprentice of Frank Lloyd Wright who did most of his greatest and best-known work in Arkansas. His namesake work is Thorncrown Chapel in Eureka Springs, which is so loved that it was put on the National Register at only 20 years old. His typical material is wood and stone, in tune with the natural environment, and he often uses novel methods to integrate modern technologies such as air conditioning into his designs. I believe this house was built in the mid-to-late 1960s.
