New Jersey’s Oldest Frank Lloyd Wright House Is on the Market
If you've ever dreamed of owning a home designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, it’ll cost you. According to 6sqft, the largest and oldest of the four New Jersey homes from the architecture icon just hit the market for $2.2 million.
Before Wright built the 2000-square-foot home in 1940, he instructed his client, James B. Christie, to find a space with “as much individuality as to topography and features—stream, trees, etc. and as much freedom from adjacent buildings as is possible.” He ended up choosing an isolated, seven-acre site in Bernardsville, New Jersey, where the house can still be seen today.
The building follows an L-shape plan and was constructed from brick, glass, and cypress wood. Every element of the house, right down to the furniture, was designed by Wright. Inside, there are three bedrooms—including a master suite that was part of the original plans but wasn’t constructed until the 1990s. In addition to the main house, the property is also home to a separate artist studio and a two-car garage.
Earlier this year, the last house Frank Lloyd Wright ever designed went up for sale at a slightly steeper price of $3.6 million. But not every home built by the architect is quite as unaffordable. In May, a Michigan home designed by Wright was listed at $445,000. You can check out the current listing for Wright’s New Jersey property at Weichert.
