Frank Lloyd Wright fans will love this Usonian stunner in Michigan. The Haddock House, designed in 1939 but not built until 40 years later, is on the market for $1.2 million.
According to the property's listing, Wright originally created the home for a schoolteacher in Wisconsin, but it wasn't built until after the architect's death. "It was commissioned in 1979 by astrophysicist Fred Haddock, and built under the supervision of Charles Montooth of Taliesin Associated Architects. Taliesin selected the design, and chose the property and site with Wright's vision in mind."
The Ann Arbor home indeed exemplifies Wright's organic architecture ideal, where the house elevates its surroundings, which include ten acres of "gardens, sloping lawns and old-growth forest overlooking Honey Creek."
Inside, there's no denying it's a FLW design, because although the kitchen and bathrooms have been renovated, there are plenty of original Wright touches. The vaulted ceilings and tall windows, the abundance of built-ins, and liberal use of his signature hue, Cherokee Red.
The two bedroom, two bathroom home measures 1,300 square feet and is listed for $1.2 million with JoAnn Barrett of Howard Hanna Real Estate.
