Frank Lloyd Wright fans, here’s your chance to admire  his Usonian-style houses built in 1939. The Sondern-Adler House in the Roanoke neighborhood of Kansas City, Missouri, is an L-shaped, 2,965-square-foot Usonian-style home, one of two that Frank Lloyd Wright built in Kansas City.

In 1939, Wright designed a 900 square foot home for Clarence Sondern in the Roanoke neighborhood of Kansas City, Missouri. Three squares connected the two wings of the L-shaped home with a workspace, laundry/heater room, and bathroom. There were two bedrooms, both with glass doors and openings to the terrace. Nine years later, Arnold Adler, the second owner of the home, once again called upon Wright to design the addition to the home that would add on more than 2,000 square feet, which included another bedroom, additional bathrooms, additional living spaces and a carport.

A cypress and brick exterior virtually melts into the surrounding wooded landscape. Enjoy seamless use of indoor and outdoor spaces with multiple terraces and floor to ceiling windows. Admirers of Wright will appreciate the clerestory windows, welcoming fireplaces and intimate spaces created in and around the home with the use of local materials.

The home connects visitors to nature with a single cantilevered roof and walls of glass. A sunken living room is anchored by a massive brick fireplace and is at once spacious and cozy. The home’s tidewater cypress ceilings and built-ins virtually embrace visitors by contrasting spacious rooms and private nooks. Wright’s unique casement windows fully open and allow for natural cooling in the summer and expansive views.
