House of the Week: Frank Lloyd Wright's 'Usonian' in Houston for sale
From Curbed.comBy Curbed.com, Monday, May 16, 2011.
Location: Houston, Texas
Price: $3.29 million
The Skinny: When this Frank Lloyd Wright-designed spread was constructed in 1954, the Bunker Hill neighborhood was a remote suburb, but by 1991, the area was so popular that the famed architect's only Houston commission was threatened by a wave of redevelopment. Luckily, the current owners purchased the property and adapted it to a modern lifestyle, building an addition that vastly expanded the 1,200-square-foot Usonian original. Now measuring more than 10,000 square feet, the home includes six bedrooms, 7.5 baths, a courtyard swimming pool, and two kitchens. Though it traded in '91 for just $535K, the expense of renovation and solid appreciation in the Houston property market means the asking price is now $3.29 million.
