Have you always wanted to live in a Frank Lloyd Wright masterpiece? Maybe a better question is: who hasn’t? The iconic and artistic architect’s work have had people in awe when he was alive and at his career’s peak, but the adoration hasn’t stopped. If anything, his cultish following is becoming more pronounced over time.

So if you’re in the Tri-State area and don’t balk at a $1.2 million price tag, the Stuart Richardson house in Glen Ridge, New Jersey is officially up for grabs. This 1,800 square foot abode was created with FLW’s famous Usonian style and offers touches like an inverted-pyramid ceiling, 14 French doors, a triangular wood-burning fireplace, and hexagon-etched heated red-concrete floors.

A built-in dining table acts as the divider between the kitchen and living space in the house, complete with chairs that FLW designed himself specifically for the Stuart Richardson house. There are no right angles in this house, so leave your corner shelves behind. 

Aside from the home’s timelessly cool design, its location is one of its top perks. It’s tucked away into the woods with incredible privacy from the street, and the half-acre lot boasts gardens, a stream, a pond, and an in-ground swimming pool. Not only is this house just a 35-minute train ride to New York City, but getting to the train station from the house is simple and quick—just a 15-minute walk, a 5-minute bike ride, or a 3-minute drive. 

For all of the things this FLW home offers, the asking price is completely reasonable (and as much as some people pay for rather blah apartments in NYC, anyway). There’s an open house this Saturday and Sunday from 1-4 p.m. that would be worthwhile just to see in person, especially if you are truly in the market to possibly purchase it. Private viewings can also be arranged.
