Frank Lloyd Wright in Philly Area? Check Out This House That Just Hit the Market


After more than two decades of living there, architect Donald Dunham and classics professor Annette Giesecke have decided to put their Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired house in Landenberg on the market, writes Paul Jablow for The Philadelphia Inquirer.

The married couple bought the property the house sits on today at the end of the 20th century. They stayed at the site on weekends in a trailer while they planned out their new home, which was completed in 2001.

“The design was the result of our being here,” said Dunham. “We were taken with the physical beauty of the area.”

Based on the Usonian style originated by Frank Lloyd Wright in the 1930s, the home was truly a joint creative venture.

The residence sits on nearly four acres, and “seems to hover over the landscape,” said Dunham.

With its open-concept design, the home leans toward an informal lifestyle. Recessed pocket doors lead into spacious bedrooms and the main bath. Meanwhile, floor-to-ceiling windows ensure the home is always bathed in natural light.

The pair is selling the house because they are moving to New Zealand, where they are hoping to “build another house.”
