Ever wanted to live in a Frank Lloyd Wright house? Well, now you can — for just $1.79 million! Our friends at Curbed have reported that the Gerald B. and Beverley Tonkens House in Cincinnati, Ohio, designed by Wright in 1955, has just hit the market for the very first time.
Set on more than 4 acres of land, behind a custom Wright-designed gate, the house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1991. The structure itself measures a cool 3,100 square feet and includes three bedrooms and two baths.
Like many of Wright’s homes from the time, the design of the Craftsmen-styled abode places an emphasis on linear form, with various rectangular patterns repeated throughout the accommodation. The sale of the house even includes much of the custom-made furniture, original to the design of the home. Hey, that hefty price tag isn’t looking too bad … Click through to see more pictures of the Tonkens House!
