Uppgren Residence / David Uppgren


With a low-pitched flat roof, open plan interiors, and striking showcase of natural materials in numerous wood built-ins and locally-quarried stone walls, the Frank Lloyd Wright influences are clear in this 1978 home by architect David Uppgren, who is now practising in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Located on a private 4.3 acres in Chanhassen — famously home to late superstar Prince’s Paisley Park studios — the 2,488-square-foot home is further distinguished by its stunning 100-foot-long glass wall with 10-foot-tall French doors, triangular window details, and a lofted living space on the interior.

Last sold in 2000 for $360K, the three-bedroom home went through a number of updates under current owners. These changes include tearing down a wall to open up the kitchen to the living area, adding a custom angular eat-in table, cabinetry, modern appliances, and red concrete counter tops (which were also introduced in the bathroom.) The owners also created a walk-in wine storage room plus new landscaping with a Japanese garden and water feature. It’s on the market for $590,000 — via Curbed
