A home in the Frank Lloyd Wright Usonia community in Pleasantville, New York, has come on the market, and it bears the distinct influences of the architect.
The 100-acre enclave was formed in 1947 by a cooperative of friends who were able to enlist Wright to carry out his Broadacre City anti-city concept. Wright plotted out each of where the houses would be built, even designing three of them and approving the plans for 45 others.
The home in question was not designed by Wright himself, but it might as well have been. Combining principles of organic flow and integration with the land, the 2,473-square-foot four-bedroom perches on a hillside and features clean lines, open spaces, walls of glass, and geometric design elements that are found in many of Wright’s own projects.
Still, the split-level residence more than holds its own, especially in regards to its ample indoor-outdoor living opportunities. Besides the afore-mentioned glazing, a wraparound balcony opens onto the verdant one-acre-plus site, as does a spacious deck for entertaining. Located at 29 Usonia Road, it’s offered at $1.2M.
