This 3-bed, 4-bath home, located in Orinda, California, was designed by none other that Frank Lloyd Wright. Designed in 1948 for Maynard Buehler and his wife, the home is an excellent example of Wright’s Usonian style. Let’s step inside, shall we?
The frame of L-shaped home is built of steel and concrete with redwood paneling, and these themes are repeated in the interior. The hexagonal-shaped living room is warm with redwood paneling and red-tile flooring, while tall windows let in light and garden views. Windows are again the main attraction in the modular dining room, where the rectangular shape is repeated in the recessed-panel ceiling.
The three bedrooms are all located in one wing of the house, and continue the clean, linear theme of the house in redwood and concrete.
Step outside and you will find 2.3 acres of tranquil Japanese-style gardens designed by Henry Matsutani. Wander across a foot bridge to the tea house, or enjoy the afternoon sun at the gazebo. This lovely property is offered at $4.995 million.
