Frank Lloyd Wright’s Charles and Dorothy Manson House is for sale

A pioneering Usonian home

Frank Lloyd Wright fans can get their hands on one of his earliest Usonian projects – the Charles and Dorothy Manson Residence is for sale in Wisconsin.

The simple, low-slung midcentury modern dwelling was completed in 1941 and is located in Wasau. It’s peak Lloyd Wright, built using red brick and cypress timber cladding and hugging the tree-bordered site’s slope.

According to its listing agent, David Wood, the Wisconsin property is the first of Lloyd Wright’s designs to feature perforated windows, which peek out onto the four-bedroom property’s woodland surrounds.

Interiors also use red brick and cypress timber panelling, and a mix of ceiling heights to create a sense of drama leading into the Great Room, which boasts a floor to ceiling fireplace, timber ceilings and tiled floors. Furniture designed for the home by Frank Lloyd Wright is also original and has been carefully preserved and restored.

Included in the sale price of $425,000 is the building’s blueprints, existing furniture – including ‘the original clothes drying rack designed to hang in the kitchen’ – and historic photographs of the home.
