A Michigan Frank Lloyd Wright House Is on the Market


If you're in the market for some real estate, here's something to consider: a Frank Lloyd Wright home in his famous Michigan development, The Acres (a prime example of the architect’s modern style), is now on sale for $510,000.

In 1947, a group of scientists communally enlisted Wright to plan and build a modern development in rural Michigan outside Kalamazoo, though only five houses were eventually built. This property is one of Wright's Usonian homes—middle-class dwellings the architect hoped would help make good design available to more than just the wealthy. It has four bedrooms and a one-acre plot of land around it, with signature Wright touches like skylights and concrete blocks.

Thanks to the Wright connection, both the house and the subdivision it’s part of are on the National Registry of Historic Homes. The original owners are the ones selling the 1951 house, so chances are it’s a pretty pleasant place to live. Check out the listing here.
