This Frank Lloyd Wright-Inspired House Featured in “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” is for Sale
Take one look at this house for sale, and it’s no surprise that an apprentice of Frank Lloyd Wright built it: long horizontal roofs, exceptional woodwork, vast open floor plans. But beyond its architectural design, the listing also holds power in the current pop culture landscape, as it was featured in the latest season of Amazon’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.”
Currently selling for $2.5 million, the masterpiece was on the market when it made its cameo on the popular TV series. Located in Maplewood, NJ, the home was built in 1968 by John Rattenbury in partnership with Taliesin Architects. Over 50 years later, it appeared on our screens as the set for a fictional variety-style TV show in the fifth episode “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.”

The 7,000 square foot estate’s size is just as impressive as its mid-century style, complete with seven bedrooms, eight full and two half baths, and every type of room that you’d imagine—from an airy two-story entrance hall to a recreation room and wine cellar. Spanning three floors, you can spot teak wood and gold-leaf ceiling throughout the estate.
Natural light pours in wherever it can, thanks to the floor-to-ceiling glass walls bordering the property. The listing states that the customized kitchen would be a fit for “gourmet chefs,” outfitted with state-of-the-art appliances and technology. Other charming features include the sunken wood-burning fireplace and high ceilings in the family room, and Italian marble as well as a terrazzo sunken tub in the bathrooms.
Outside, the wrap-around terrace grants views of the surrounding woodland, and the backyard has a heated swimming pool and whirlpool. It’s situated on 1.8 acres of land and boasts NYC views in the wintertime, as it’s only a 1-hour drive to Manhattan.
