The property, which lies at the end of a private drive, has been listed as ideal for use as a full-time home or hidden retreat.

Inside, the curving living space gives a sense of movement and connectivity to the outside, not unlike a tree house floating in the woods.

Magnificent oak built-ins and furniture, designed by Wright himself, show his genius in their utility.

Just adjacent to the main house, atop the properties rising stone wall, is a distinctive concrete formed pedestal carport; a mushroom seemingly growing up from the ground.

Frank Lloyd Wright was an American architect, interior designer, writer and educator, who designed more than 1,000 structures, 532 of which were completed.

Wright believed in designing structures that were in harmony with humanity and its environment, a philosophy he called organic architecture.

This philosophy was best exemplified by Fallingwater (1935), which has been called ‘the best all-time work of American architecture’.
