The Usonia community in Pleasantville, NY, was created as a tribute to legendary architect Frank Lloyd Wright to celebrate his “Usonian” home ideal–design that would integrate with a home’s natural surroundings and live and grow with its inhabitants. The site plan, road system, and a handful of homes in the community were designed by Wright himself, but most of its houses were created by his associates and admirers, David Henken and Aaron Resnick. Henken designed the three-bedroom home at 6 Usonia Road in 1950. In true Wright style, this mid-century modern property, known as the Anderson House, is surrounded by greenery, with floor to ceiling windows and a wraparound deck. The house is now on the market for $810,000.

The home’s interiors have been transformed by the current owners in a 21st-century modern style that is also in step with the home’s modernist design. The unique architecture of the house is complemented by the surrounding landscape of decks and stone footpaths.

Interiors feature white epoxy floors that contrast with rich wood details. Clean lines frame the verdant views in every direction in the home’s main social spaces.
