Usonian-style house in CALIFORNIA by Frank Lloyd Wright’s son

 

In the serene San Gabriel foothills, California, there is another property designed in Wright’s iconic Usonian style waiting for its new owner. Built in 1948 by his son, Frank Lloyd Wright Jr., the house features a combination of horizontal lines, concrete walls, glass panels, and distinctive rooflines. Surrounded by a tranquil landscape with native plants and trees, the property includes a peaceful water garden that attracts birds and dragonflies.

 

Outside, the property hosts a patio with diagonally scored concrete and a built-in barbecue, providing ample space for outdoor gatherings. The lush yard creates a connection to nature, offering a tranquil and inviting environment. The structure was renovated, preserving its historic charm while incorporating modern amenities. Today, the house is listed by Sotheby’s International Realty and hits the market for $2,9M.
