ESTATE


When you enter the Frank Lloyd Wright Estate, you immediately sense this place is special. And it is. The Estate is the winner of the “Most Beautiful Home in the World” award. This is the only Bay Area property to win this award and is a destination in its own right drawing admirers from around the world.


As you walk through the Estate, you respond instinctively to the fine proportions and materials. Your eyes dance about in appreciation of the beauty. This place is sumptuous Mid-Century Modern. Although the Estate is extraordinarily elegant with 22K gold ceilings and a solid copper roof, you’re struck by how its design and décor make you feel welcome. This is why its creator Frank Lloyd Wright was named by the American Institute of Architects “the world’s greatest architect of all time.” It is the perfect setting for your special event.

And what is particularly delightful about this spacious six building, four acre estate is that you have so many options from which to choose. The properties neutral palette is compatible with any color scheme. If you’re seeking a smashing venue for a personal celebration or a company soiree, this is the place. And you won’t have to worry about keeping your reception private. No other activities are permitted on the Estate while you celebrate your special day. Your guests will not be sharing space with others on wine tastings or tours.


Couples can host any or all parts of their celebration here from bridal shower and rehearsal dinner to a sublime morning after brunch. And although it’s very high end, what you’ll find most impressive is how the unflappable staff treats you and your fortunate guests. They are totally devoted to ensuring an absolutely perfect party experience for all. And they promise you this: they will make the most of this incredible setting and provide all the finery to make your celebration truly perfect.


Staff's quarters and the immaculate stainless steel food prep area are physically separated from your reception so your guests are unaware of the detailed preparation involved. And only environmentally safe cleaning products are used at the Estate

Its convenient location, in fact, the Frank Lloyd Wright Estate in Orinda is the geographic center of the Bay Area, four minutes from Bart and Freeways, and twenty minutes from San Francisco. And the charming and lovely town of Orinda is safe, secure and named the second friendliest town in the United States by Forbes Magazine.

Other venues boast of “effortless elegance.” Don’t you believe it. Elegance is never effortless. That’s why we—not they—won the “Most Beautiful Home in the World” award. The Frank Lloyd Wright Estate is indisputably the most exclusive venue in the Bay Area. All proceeds go toward the preservation of this architectural gem.
