Frank Lloyd Wright Apprentice House Featured in ‘Mrs. Maisel’ Hits the Market

Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation | Jan 13, 2020

The eight-bedroom home that was recently featured on the hit TV show “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” is
located on nearly two acres of land in New Jersey and is on the market for $2.5 million.

This John Rattenbury-designed home, built in 1968 and located in the Upper Wyoming neighborhood in New Jersey is for sale and currently listed at $2.5 million. Rattenbury was an apprentice of Frank Lloyd Wright’s for eight years, and continued his work through the Taliesin Associated Architects (TAA), the architecture firm created by Wright’s apprentices following his passing. The Kessler’s commissioned TAA to design the home for them because they admired Wright’s Fallingwater, and wanted a luxurious custom home with a similar feel.

The home was recently featured in the fifth episode of season three of the popular TV show, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.” In the episode, the Kessler residence is the backdrop for a fictional variety-style talk show.

The two-story home incorporates a great amount of natural light throughout the living spaces, and includes seven bedrooms, eight full bathrooms and two half bathrooms. The family room features a sunken fireplace, high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, as well as access to a wrap-around terrace and heated swimming pool.

The private master suite features dual bathrooms with marble counters and showers, terrazzo floors, a sunken terrazzo tub, a sauna, and steam showers.


The kitchen includes dual ovens, granite countertops, custom wood cabinetry, under-cabinet lighting, as well as a Thermador cooktop with copper hood and a SubZero refrigerator and freezer. On the lower level of the home is a recreation room with a wine cellar, wet bar, second kitchen, pool table, and an exercise room.
