Frank Lloyd Wright House in Minnesota for Sale
Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation | Jun 1, 2018
The Frieda and Henry J. Neils House has been listed for $3.4 million.
Originally designed in 1949 on a unit system of hexagons, the Minnesota home is an L-shaped design and faces the southeastern shore of Cedar Lake. The Usonian-style, 2,511 square foot home has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.
The stone masonry throughout the home is in marble. Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer—in the 1885-1916 volume of his series Wright—notes:
“The materials for this house are similar to the one for the Auerbach House, with stonework and hip roofs, but in this case the walls angle slightly in as they rise.”
The roof cantilevers beyond the carport and beyond the living room.
Some of the furniture throughout the home is Wright-designed, including built-ins, desks, tables, and beds. The property has had few significant alterations to the original design and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The home is located at 2801 Burnham Boulevard, Minneapolis, MN 55416. For more information about the home and the sale, visit the listing on the Lakes Sotheby’s International Realty website. All photos via Lakes Sotheby’s International Realty.
