A Usonian home dating back to 1939 has been listed for $1.2m in Ogden Dunes, Indiana, and it’s chock-full of classic Frank Lloyd Wright elements.
The four-bedroom Indiana property is spread across two storeys, which step up the sloping grounds. As well as a double-height living room, the home includes four bathrooms, a sauna, and a four-car garage.
Period features include built-in cabinets, board-and-batten walls, and the finger jointed brickwork Wright deployed in many of his designs. Huge windows make the most of the home’s views over its wooded surroundings.
The Usonian property’s been owned by several families over the years and was extended in the 1960s by John Howe – who’d previously worked as chief draftsman at Wright’s Taliesin.
A further extension happened in the 70s, adding a porch and expanding the kitchen, and some of the original cypress panelling has been replaced over the years. Lake Michigan and Indian Dunes National Park aren’t far from the property, listed with McColly Real Estate.
