Those looking for a “not-so-big house” that’s “well-versed in the architectural grammar of Frank Lloyd Wright,” per the listing language, look no further than this little single-bedroom in Boise, Idaho.
The brokerbabble is more or less spot on and doesn’t hedge on what’s on offer: a cozy residence with one bedroom and one bath on 775 square feet of living space that takes more than just a word or two from Wright’s iconic language.
Still, it’s cute, and it’s got character by way of a brick-and-timber construction topped by an oversized, flat overhanging roof, floor-to-ceiling windows, built-in seating around a brick hearth, an integrated kitchen with custom cabinetry, and brick flooring (or else carpeting in parts). It’s all very Frank-Lloyd-Wright.
Built in 1980, it’s been virtually untouched since then, but in a good way. A period bathroom and the afore-mentioned kitchen place it squarely in the time-capsule camp, even if the era it’s preserving was merely three decades ago. There’s also a carport and a bonus laundry room.
Located at 1085 East Krall Street less than a mile from the Greenbelt, Rivers to Ridges trailheads, and Broadway Avenue, according to the listing, the property is offered at $299,000.
