Called “La Prairie” the family home was designed by the architect Edouard Albert, famous for the first Parisian skyscraper. But earlier in his carrer the architect dabbled in a more traditional vernacular. For the Freys, he created a Normandy-style property with a wood structure, painted shutters and a rustic redbricks roof.
