Frank Lloyd Wright’s Sondern-Adler House for Sale
Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation | Sep 17, 2018
The Kansas City, Missouri, home is listed at $1.6 million.
Built in an L-shape, this Usonian home has earned a double name. One half of the name comes from the first owner, Clarence Sondern, who commissioned a 900-square-foot home by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1939. The second half comes from the home’s second owner, who expanded the home by more than 2,000 square feet in 1948, which included another bedroom, additional bathrooms, additional living spaces and a carport.
The now 2,965-square-foot home is now up for sale for $1,650,000.
The exterior and interiors are made up of cypress and brick. “As with all the Usonian houses, the brick masonry walls and board and batten partitions rest on a concrete mat with floor heating,” wrote Bruce Brooks Pfieffer in his book series, Wright.
The Sondern-Adler House is one of only two Frank Lloyd Wright homes in Kansas City. The home is set on a 1.4-acre lot with three bedrooms and three bathrooms.
