ABOUTPROPERTY

This rare and authentic 1,800 sq. ft. 3BR/2BA Frank Lloyd Wright 'Usonian' home exudes elegance and comfort. Designed in 1941, built with the architect's participation in 1951, and lovingly restored to purist's standards in 2006, this house is an architectural treasure. Built of cypress and brick, the Stuart Richardson house is one of only a few that Wright designed using a hexagonal module - the geometric shape scribed into the concrete floor then followed in the placement of walls. As a consequence, all angles in the house are either 60- or 120-degrees - only two right angles can be found in the structure. The site is a hidden sanctuary reached by a gated driveway, protected by trees and landscaping, in the Glen Ridge Historic District. Houses of this stature and quality seldom come to market.

The Stuart Richardson house is one of only a few that Wright designed using a hexagonal module - a geometric shape scribed into the concrete floor then followed in the placement of walls. As a consequence, all angles in the house are either 60- or 120-degrees - only two right angles can be found in the structure.

True to Wright's Usonian design philosophy, the house has a relatively large, basically triangular, living room, planned as the center of family activities. Bedrooms, situated spoke-fashion around what Wright called a "loggia" and we call the atrium, are small and utilitarian.
