One can only ever dream of living in one of the architecturally masterful Frank Lloyd Wright houses, or at least, until now. Yes, a blessed interior design lover has the opportunity to call Carroll Alsop House their home, as it is currently taking offers at a discreet private sale. 

The price includes the property in Oskaloosa, Iowa, and a selection of original Wright-designed home decor, including four square vintage tables and eight dining/side chairs. 

Designed by the iconic architect in 1947 and completed in 1951, the home in Oskaloosa is one of Frank’s seven Usonia properties in the state – making it an undisputed staple of mid-century modernist design.

The 2300 square foot home is concealed amid a hidden hillside but stands out primarily due to its associable red-brick that envelopes both the interiors and exterior of the property. The arty facade also includes a sweeping cantilevered carport and large windows – setting the tone for what’s to come beyond its front door.

It is believed that Wright created the home in the south and east-facing hillside to improve solar heating and accentuate the views of the Iowan countryside.

The new residents of Carroll Alsop House can enjoy the large L-shaped living and dining spaces that are wrapped in glazing and broken by an impressive cantilevered fireplace. This space leads to four bedrooms, yet the master-suite steers away from the statement rectilinear design. 

The suite leads onto a terrace – where you can observe the kingdom in which this house has an eternal legacy.

Along with all rooms throughout the property, this room was managed by Wright’s apprentice John deKoven Hill before their trusted builder Jim De Reus undertook the construction project.

The home was built around the same time as the neighboring Lamberson House before these exquisitely designed shrines provoked an architectural movement around Oskaloosa in the years that followed. This is the unrivaled power of Frank Lloyd Wright, after all.
