Frank Lloyd Wright Home in Minnesota Goes on Sale for the First Time Ever
One of the last homes designed by Frank Lloyd Wright is in need of new owners, according to Town & Country. The American architect got to work on the house in 1958, a year before his death. Construction was completed without him in 1960 and now the house is on the market for the first time in its history.
The structure has belonged Paul and Helen Olfelt since the couple hired Wright to build it nearly 60 years ago. Located seven miles from downtown Minneapolis, it contains three bedrooms, two baths, and fixtures and furnishings designed by Wright himself. The property is one of about 60 Usonian-style homes designed by the architect between the mid-1930s and late '50s. Like others in the group, the Minnesota building is a ranch house with an open floor plan and strong lines throughout. It also features a finished basement—a rarity for a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed property.
In the past few years alone, Wright houses have been listed at prices ranging from $445,000 to $3.6 million. The Minnesota listing lands somewhere in the middle at $1.395 million. You can find a more detailed description of the home at Coldwell Banker.
