Enjoy some pic of our house that was designed and built by former Frank Lloyd Wright apprentice (1953-1961) Bob Beharka.

Very nice place. I LOVE the full-height narrow doors in the dining room.

Fantastic place! The double-height space adds some great drama, and there are so many original details to drool over.

Bob Beharka undoubtedly contributed more to the architectural fabric of Los Banos than pretty much any other architect of the time. Great to see one of his works so well preserved.
