If you’ve been searching for the perfect home—one that has the right combination of natural light and modern structure, plentiful windows, and natural textures—you’re in luck. A Frank Lloyd Wright home is up for sale in Kansas City, Missouri, for $1.65 million, and it’s a rare find.

Dubbed the Sondern-Adler House, the structure was originally constructed by Wright in 1939 and was expanded for its second owners (resulting in its current size of 2,965 square feet) in 1948. Currently, the home is surrounded by 1.4 acres of lush natural landscape—including a koi pond just outside of the sitting room.

Clerestory windows and French doors fill the living space, walled in both wood and brick, with an abundance of sunlight. The architectural style is distinctive yet versatile—current owners have outfitted the space in complementary earth tones, mixing mid-century furniture with more eccentric antiques and artwork.

Overall, the design of the space prioritizes openness—so central to Wright’s architectural philosophy—in addition to harmonizing with nature. This rare opportunity to own such a masterpiece of American architecture is sure to be taken quickly, so if you’re really interested, act fast. It’s not every day that you can buy such an iconic home.

Here’s how we would decorate the space (if someone would like to lend us $1.65 million).
