This unique listing should definitely get the attention of modern house lovers and math geeks. One of three remaining New Jersey homes (a fourth was moved to Arkansas in 2014) designed by Frank Lloyd Wright is up for sale for $995,000. The home was purchased by the current owners in 1996 and restored to “purists’ standards” in 2006. The house follows the architect’s “Usonian” plan which incorporates native materials and strong visual connections between interiors and the exterior landscape.
The Stuart Richardson House, designed for an actuary and his wife in 1941 and built in 1951, follows a unique hexagonal floor plan in which all but two of the home’s angles measure either 60 or 120 degrees–including hexagon-shaped floor tiles and built-in furniture.
Built of cypress, brick and glass, the home sits behind a gated driveway in the Glen Ridge Historic District. Hexagonal skylights and floor-to-ceiling windows keep rooms filled with light, and a stone-rimmed pool is a highlight of the landscaped grounds.
