Kaweah Falls House, a River Runs Through it!

By • Mar 28, 2011 •  Selected Work 

Located in Three Rivers, a rustic yet stylish community which serves as the gateway to the Sequoia National Park in California, this home was built in 1942 by architect Frank Robert, a student of Frank Lloyd Wright.

This single-family residence is unique for its design which actually spans the rushing flume waters, and yet is absolute riverfront to the main river adjacent.

There are four private living spaces for a total of 3,000+ sq/ft with 4 bedrooms, 4 full baths, 2 kitchens plus several private decks and porches all with amazing river views.

In case you are interested in this inspiring retreat, it is offered at $1,950,000 at the time of writing.

The gated entry reveals a verdant paradise nestled amid mature trees and lush vegetation.

The bright and open public rooms are stylish and sophisticated, and include a bar with a glass counter and floor which give a bird’s-eye view directly down to the river and the rainbow trout.

The master suite is large and impressive and with its own wrap-around deck and beautiful river views, and its gorgeous bathroom has a steam room and a spa tub.

There is also a second bedroom suite on this main level. Downstairs, there are 2 private comfortable guest suites located at either end of the house.

One has a screened-in lanai and compact full kitchen. There are entertaining areas everywhere, including a riverside deck, and a sandy beach!

Completing this fascinating property is a creative office space, cleverly located in the rear of the garage complex, and separated with glass sliding doors, and with beautiful views of the river setting.

This home is truly idyllic, a perfect getaway and somewhere to entertain in great style in the very tamed wild, complete with the constant music of the rushing waters of the Kaweah River.
