2280 Tudor Drive (1980)


This contemporary home was designed by Frederick D. Nichols of Charlottesville, Virginia, assisted by Robert C. Gaede of Cleveland from original sketches by the owners. A personal friend of the owner-builders and faculty member of the Department of Architecture at the University of Virginia, Mr. Nichols was responsible for carrying through Thomas Jefferson's design for the University of Virginia Library.


The home was built in 1971 as a retirement home accommodating wheel chairs. The construction required meeting zoning laws on a small, deep lot, the last of those in the "Euclid Golf" section (sometimes called the "Deming" development after B. R. Deming, who bought it for sale in 1914).
