Frank Lloyd Wright-Inspired Home Keeps a Son From Heading For The Hills


Y’all remember Rucker Hill, right? He’s the son of dynamo Nathan Grace agent Peggy Hill (no, not that Peggy Hill!) who has an eye for properties with remodeling in mind. His company, Rucker Design Build, has done some amazing work!

We love what he’s done with some of his projects, especially 10726 Meadowcliff, a 1970s contemporary he brought back to life. So, we were pleased as punch to hear he bought that gorgeous Lochwood Midcentury Modern we wrote about last week.


His mom, Peggy, is even more happy. You see, Rucker had planned to run off to Colorado, but after seeing 10815 Sinclair here on, he snapped it up and decided to stay put!

I think both Peggy and Rucker can consider themselves lucky, since listing agent Brandon Stewart says that amazing little Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired home sparked a feeding frenzy that ended with five bids all above asking!

Congrats, Rucker! And do keep us in the loop as you remodel this fabulous property!

Friday Four Hundred, For the Modern Tastes: A Tribute to the Tri-Level

There is this young man named Rucker Hill. His mother is Nathan Grace Real Estate dynamo Peggy Hill. Now Rucker is apparently remodeling homes with Rucker Design & Build, and we are so very glad — look at this baby! This is a 1973 era home, and those years are very hot with young buyers, I hear. You get over 2000 square feet and the necessities of three bedrooms, two and a half baths, two living areas. You get a creek lot (almost 1/3rd acre) in Lake Highlands and you get style, baby. Tri level: we were discussing tri-levels just this week. Two-thirds of the homes on Long Island are tri-levels. I think we ought to have a national Tri-Level Day! The living/den here is on the second level, with walls of glass, and that coveted open kitchen-dining. Rucker has given this Brady Bunch design 21st century updates like baby-butt smooth walls, sleek gourmet kitchen, great white baths with vessels, hardwoods, walk-in pantry, & much more. I will be eagerly awaiting his next move… this angel can be found at 10726 Meadowcliff at a mere, a MERE $425,000.
