The Jorgine Boomer Cottage is adjacent to the Adelman property. Supposedly, the Adelmans and Boomers met at the nearby Biltmore Hotel and often played bridge together and sometimes with Mamie Eisenhower.

Boomer Cottage Gate

Two stories in height with an equilateral parallelogram foot­print and built around a central chimney flue, the home was designed as what Wright called a “mountain cottage”. It is a just over 1400 square feet, but has separate servant’s and chauffeur’s quarters. Built from desert rubble and wood sheathing, the home faces north — away from the hot summer sun of the Arizona desert. It bears a vague resemblance to the Walker Residence in Carmel, CA.

About Me

Yvonne Carpenter-Ross

FLW Enthusiast & Webmaster

Architecture and home design have always fascinated me. As a young girl I enjoyed drawing floor plans, rearranging my parent’s furniture and playing with Lincoln Logs and Legos.  My passion has always been the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright. Since I have been old enough to drive a car, I have visited Frank Lloyd Wright homes in the Chicagoland area and attended the Wright Plus house walks. Now, as co-owners of Northern Sky Designs, my husband & I are able to combine our website design skills and FLW travels to bring you this website! Enjoy!
