Frank Lloyd Wright’s Carroll Alsop House is now taking offers

One can only ever dream of living in one of the architecturally masterful Frank Lloyd Wright houses, or at least, until now. Yes, a blessed interior design lover has the opportunity to call Carroll Alsop House their home, as it is currently taking offers at a discreet private sale. 

The price includes the property in Oskaloosa, Iowa, and a selection of original Wright-designed home decor, including four square vintage tables and eight dining/side chairs. 

Designed by the iconic architect in 1947 and completed in 1951, the home in Oskaloosa is one of Frank’s seven Usonia properties in the state – making it an undisputed staple of mid-century modernist design.

The 2300 square foot home is concealed amid a hidden hillside but stands out primarily due to its associable red-brick that envelopes both the interiors and exterior of the property. The arty facade also includes a sweeping cantilevered carport and large windows – setting the tone for what’s to come beyond its front door.

It is believed that Wright created the home in the south and east-facing hillside to improve solar heating and accentuate the views of the Iowan countryside.
