Frank Lloyd Wright’s Westhope mansion hits the market

 

UPDATE (03/25/2024): Frank Lloyd Wright’s Westhope has received a significant price adjustment from $7,9M to $4.5M. ‘This price adjustment enhances accessibility of Westhope to discerning local buyers, mirroring Mr. Price’s intention to entrust the property to a steward committed to its continued preservation and civic engagement,’ the agent, Rob Allen of Sage Sotheby’s International Realty, shares.

 

Another of Frank Lloyd Wright’s iconic houses is on sale, searching for its new owner. Located in a quiet neighborhood in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the two-story house, known as Westhope, was built by the master architect in 1929 for his cousin, Richard Lloyd Jones, a Tulsa Tribune publisher. Fifty years after its construction, in 1972, it was added to the National Register of Historic Places and today is listed by Sotheby’s International Realty for $7,9M, after a two-year makeover. 

 

Westhope is the only Wright-designed house in Tulsa, and one of only three in Oklahoma, along with Price Tower and Jr House. Standing as a masterpiece, the mansion is characterized by its grand scale, marking one of the largest residences Wright ever built, as well as defined by its breathable facade, built up by a system of square glass windows and cement ‘textile’ blocks.

generous glazing brings the scenery inside 

 

Placed on a property of 1,9 acres, nestled among the lush landscape, the house offers 10,405 sq ft (967 sqm) of living space with five bedrooms, and 4,5 bathrooms, while enjoying an immense private courtyard with a pool. The rare property is designed in Wright’s innovative style, combining concrete blocks with thousands of glass panes seamlessly, forming a vertical pattern, visible from both the outside and inside.

 

The generous use of glazing provides the interiors with plenty of natural light, giving users an enhanced spatial experience. The well-lit rooms are completed with a series of built-in furniture pieces, all made from a similar wood, thus adding a visual continuity and balance to all spaces — a signature feature typically found in Frank Lloyd Wright’s works (find more here). Although the structure was renovated, the new design reflects better Wright’s original design language, accentuating his distinctive style.
