Frank Lloyd Wright’s ‘favourite small house’ is for sale in Michigan’s Okemos priced at just $479,000.
The 1,400 sq ft Goetsch-Winckler House was built in 1939 for a pair of professors at Michigan State University, and it’s been lovingly restored by its present owners, Dan and Audrey Seidman, over 13 years.
Built in Frank Lloyd Wright’s characteristic Usonian style, the single-storey home has two bedrooms. Walls of windows and clerestory windows flood the Michigan property with light and connect it to its wooded 2-acre plot.
Ceilings appear to float above the Goetsch-Winckler House’s brick volumes, exaggerating the feeling of height inside the property, which also has Lloyd Wright’s signature red flooring and wood panelling. Rooms meanwhile are furnished with pieces Lloyd Wright designed for the building, and the bedrooms and studio open onto a fenced lanai.
The Seidman family documented their meticulous restoration of the building in a blog and are selling their home directly. Interested parties should contact firstname.lastname@example.org
