New, 1 comment

And live in a whole community of homes designed after Wright's principles

Location: Worthington, Ohio

Price: $699,900

It may not be an original Frank Lloyd Wright design, but this Usonian-style home in Worthington, Ohio has a distinction of its own. Completed in 1957, it's one of almost 50 homes in the town's historic Rush Creek Village, considered the country's largest collection of homes designed after Wright's principle of organic architecture. The subdivision originated in the late 1950s, when Martha and Richard Wakefield, a couple from Columbus, Ohio, enlisted architect and avid Frank Lloyd Wright follower Theodore van Fossen to design their own residence, and then a couple dozen more for folks interested in joining the community.

This particular renovated home spreads four bedrooms over 2,700 square feet, and features clearly Wright-inspired vaulted ceilings, built-ins, skylights, expansive glass windows, and great sight lines throughout the house. The kitchen has been updated with stainless steel appliances, and there's also a wraparound deck and terrace with views of the ravine. Last sold in 1999 for $185,000, the house on 1.48 acres now seeks $700K.
