Your chance to own a bit of Frank Lloyd Wright history has just arrived. One of Wright’s largest Usonian properties has just come up for sale in Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin for the first time since it was built in 1956. It boasts 6 bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms, and spans just under 5,000 square feet. And the best part about it? It looks like it hasn’t been touched since it was first constructed.

The Mount Pleasant home (called the Keland House by Wright fans) is listed through Re/Max for $725,000 and has every architectural detail one associates with Frank Lloyd Wright: low-slung roofs, warm wood interiors, clean mid-century lines, and views that make the 3-acre lot the star of the show.

According to Architectural Digest, Keland House was commissioned in 1956 by Karen Johnson Keland, who was a member of the S.C. Johnson family, and her first husband, Willard. Karen later remarried William Boyd, and some fans have come to know the house as the Johnson-Boyd house for that reason. 

Wright also designed the S.C. Johnson headquarters as well as Karen Johnson-Boyd’s childhood home, Wingspread.

When Karen and William passed away, Keland House was put into and is being sold through a trust. The home is in need of some repairs — including roof renovations — which explains lower the cost of the property. 

Fans of Wright’s work better hop on this opportunity sooner than later. Its now-viral status means Keland house is definitely not going to stay on the market for long.
