Embodying the spirit of Frank Lloyd Wright's Usonian homes—typically flat-roofed one-story structures that engage with the landscape—this 1980s woodland house with cantilevered overhangs offers a cozy retreat particularly if wood is your element. Designed by architect Mitch Witkowski as his own home, the house spreads three bedrooms and two baths across 1,963 square feet. The interior is characterized by eco-conscious material choices, like wood, tile, stone, glass, and bamboo, as well as partial walls that create sight-lines connecting spaces to each other and to the outdoors.
The surroundings—10 tranquil acres of white birch and hardwood trees—are further drawn in through clerestory windows and generous decks and a sunroom. The property also includes a separate studio atop a garage. Originally hitting the market for $418K this past May, the home has just been PriceChopped to a clean $300K.
