Kansas City, MO 1939
This Frank Lloyd Wright treasure is located in the heart of Kansas City in a spectacular treetop setting. The original, 900 square foot home was commissioned by Dr. & Mrs. Clarence Sondern in 1939. Later, Mr. Wright was asked to expand the home to its current 2,965 square feet by Mr. & Mrs. Arnold Adler in 1948. Home contains three bedrooms, three full baths, large dining area open to a step down living room, kitchen and bar area, great room with tall ceilings, carport accommodating two cars, and large outdoor terrace.
The elegant gallery rooms and private terraces are ideal for entertaining. The red tidewater cypress and brick construction add an organic element to Wright’s Usonian design. He achieved his vision by incorporating walls of windows and numerous French door that spill onto patios, gardens and a Koi pond; all overlooking the 1.4 acre lot.
