Eppstein Residence / Frank Lloyd Wright


This 1950s Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Eppstein Residence in Galesburg, Michigan, USA is the latest to hit the market. Actually, that should be returned to the market, as this was up for sale a while back. Seems like the sale might well have fallen through, as the house is up again, tempting us in with its low price tag. At least, in comparison to UK houses of similar stature.

The house is on The Acres, which contains four Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Usonian homes, along with two properties from Taliesin School fellow Francis Willsey. The idea was to create some kind of co-operative on the 70-acre site, with 21 houses, each on a one-acre plot, with excess land for communal use. Sadly that never quite came to fruition. But the houses that were build still stand, now with the added protection of being on the National Register of Historical Places.

This particular build dates from 1953 and looks very much like it has been restored to bring out the best of the place. It’s up for sale at $455,000 — via WowHaus
