Tucked in Pleasantville, New York, less than an hour north of Manhattan, a 100-acre enclave boasts an impressive number of Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired organic homes. Most of the homes in the planned community were not designed by Wright himself—instead they were approved and plotted out by the iconic architect and executed by his apprentices.
Called Usonia, the district is now on the National Register of Historic Places and encompasses about 46 structures. The latest to hit the market is the Anderson House, a 1950 three-bedroom, one-bath structure designed by Wright engineer and designer David Henken.
The home is modest in size at just 1,856 square feet, in harmony with Wright’s philosophy to serve the middle class with comfortable, affordable homes. But the structure isn’t diminutive in stature, making a dramatic visual impact with angular overhanging roof lines that jut into the forest.
Inside, floor-to-ceiling glass contrasts with exposed beams, warm wood finishes, and an expansive fireplace. In the open concept floor plan, white epoxy floors and an updated galley opens up to the dining and sofa areas for entertaining. A wraparound deck—also with angles that reach out into the trees—adds to the charm.
