There is no doubt that the work of the west coast architects in developing the northwest coast style was greatly influenced by the revolutionary work of Frank Lloyd Wright and his extraordinary rethink of what a midwest house should look and feel like.
Via Adele Weder comes this gem of an original Frank Lloyd Wright House originally commissioned by the same couple now selling it. The couple now in their nineties are selling the house-completely untouched-for about 1.4 million dollars in US dollars.
“The three bedroom, two bathroom home sits on 3.77 “extremely private acres at the end of a quiet cul de sac” in St. Louis Park, just seven miles from downtown Minneapolis. Inside its 2,647 square feet, there are vaulted ceilings and walls of windows that take advantage of the “incredible light” in the home’s breathtaking great room, which also features a stunning brick fireplace. The floors throughout are done in the architect’s signature hue, Cherokee Red.”
This project commenced in 1958 and was completed in 1960. Most of the furniture inside the house was designed by Wright and the “property has extensive built-ins, as well as dining chairs, lamps, and even cabinet pulls created from Wright’s original designs. The place even has a finished basement, quite a rare find for a FLW house.”
The home is currently listed with Coldwell Banker for $1.395 million, or approximately 1.86 million dollars in Canadian currency.
