Not everyone can own a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed home, but the architect’s style has influenced hundreds—if not thousands—of other buildings. Take this three-bedroom, four-bath home about an hour north of Philadelphia.

Designed in 1948 by Philadelphia architect Morris J. Rosenthal, the midcentury modern stone and glass house sits on the edge of a rock bluff high above Paunacussing Creek. A flat roof amplifies long horizontal lines on the exterior, while inside an open floor plan is anchored by a dramatic curvilinear stone wall.

A recent renovation used the home’s architectural blueprints and old photos to maintain authenticity, prioritizing the property’s original slate floors, walls of glass, and multiple wood-burning fireplaces. The bedrooms feature polished concrete floors and the master bath boasts Blue Lagos radiant heated floors, a semi-circle vanity, and a glass and stone shower.

Sitting on almost nine acres, the verdant property includes new landscaping, a custom iron electronic gate, and the home’s original 1948 steel and stone bridge.

Is this the midcentury modern masterpiece you’ve been looking for? 6390 Fleecydale Road is on the market now for $3,875,000.
