Baristanet shared what it was like to walk through one of our state’s four Frank Lloyd Wright homes back in 2011. Now, the rare Usonian mid-century modern home at 63 Chestnut Hill Place in Glen Ridge is up for sale at $995,000.
This rare authentic 1800 sqft 3BR/2BA Frank Lloyd Wright Usonian mid-century modern home exudes elegance and comfort. Designed in 1941, built with the architect’s participation in 1951 and lovingly restored to purists’ 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.
