The most beautiful house in Lakewood

Nestled among the unending clusters of ugly developments in Lakewood there is a gem of a house.
I know that most of my readership has such firmly embedded ideas of what is considered beautiful in a house and judging by what people are building, might think I'm from another planet.

This house, 444 Hope Chapel Rd is a marvel of modern design clearly inspired by the likes of Frank Lloyd Wright.
It has great lateral movement and draws the eye so pleasantly with it's cantilevered terraces and overhangs, at the same time blending so well into the background due to its floor to ceiling glass walls.

Every time I pass by, I have to slow down and admire this work of art.
