This Frank Lloyd Wright home in Galesburg finds a new owner

It’s not too often we see Frank Lloyd Wright homes go up for sale in Michigan. So when the David and Christine Weisblat House went up for sale for the first time last fall, we knew it was big news. Owned by the same family since it was built, the Usonian home sits in a subdivision called The Acres, which was created by a group of scientists who worked for Upjohn in Kalamazoo in 1949. It was in pristine condition and listing for $510,000. Agent Brian Kirksey from Ethos Real Estate tells Curbed that the house just sold for a $511,000 cash deal.

The house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and contains its natural original characteristics: concrete floors, skylights, Honduran mahogany, and built-in bookshelves and desks. The original furniture was included in the sale, and the buyer has agreed to place an exterior and interior historic preservation easement on the home swell. It’s a beautiful house in a gorgeous natural setting. Here’s one more look around.
