This spectacular large house was built for a senior Dow Chemical executive with a large family. Large rooms built for entertaining feature two fireplaces while the bedroom wing holds two pairs of bedrooms with shared baths in addition to the large master suite. There is lavish paneling and wood trim throughout as well as terrazzo flooring, and almost all fixtures and finishes are original to the house. Interior walls and ceilings are built with concrete panels for a virtually fireproof structure, a hallmark of Willard designs.
