HOUSE HISTORY:
The David and Christine Weisblat House is situated within The Acres, a 70-acre subdivision designed by Frank LloydWright with four Wright homes. The subdivision was originally established in 1949 as a co-op by a group of scientists that worked for the Upjohn Pharmaceutical Company. The house is located on a one-acre disc shaped wooded lot and backs up to acres of common area trails. The site features an open lot with rolling topography, mature landscaping and a unique frog pond.

The Weisblat House is one of about 140 Usonian homes built nationally by Wright. Each design was site-specific to take advantage of the view and terrain. The Usonian floor plans were typically single-story homes with small entryways, narrow passages, large central fireplaces, low roofs, radiant heating and large central living areas with floor-to-ceiling windows.

The house, like two others in the neighborhood, was built using Wright’s “in-line” plan. It was built in 1951 and features an addition (constructed in 1961) that was originally planned by Wright but not finalized until after his death in 1959. Completed by John Howe and William Wesley Peters, it was designed as a natural extension of the original home and Wright’s design.

This architectural gem, listed on the National Register of Historic Places as well as The Acres subdivision, has been successfully maintained and owned by the Weisblat family and is being offered for sale for the first time. This is your chance to own one of the last originally owned Wright homes in existence today.
