The influence of Frank Lloyd Wright is visible all over the country. His signature style even stretched to the Pacific Northwest.

We’ve found a fantastic Wright-influenced home for sale in Seattle—built in 1911 and designed by Wright apprentices Andrew Willatsen and Francis Barry Byrne. On the market for $3 million, the masterpiece is in mint condition.

The current homeowners spent nine years painstakingly restoring the original features of the home, including the handcrafted copper gutters.

“The owners requested the original home plans, which were available through the University of Washington,” says listing agent Allen Minner. “They thoroughly researched everything from the process of building this kind of home to the materials used.”

Living space


Open spaces


Wright’s signature organic architecture is known for its bond with natural elements, incorporating the surrounding landscape and materials. This home features local magnesite flooring in the entryway and kitchen and Russian oak flooring throughout the rest of the house.

The original root cellar was converted into a library, and a workshop was created in the south end of the basement. The Tiffany sconces and wood windows are original to the house.

Dining room


The main interior rooms are open and airy, providing a bright and peaceful space.

“The living area is really unique, especially for the time in which it was built, because it’s so open. It’s even ‘open concept’ to today’s standards,” says Minner.



The kitchen is the only room that isn’t a facsimile of the original home, but the owners made sure their recent updates to this space fit with the rest of the home.

“The kitchen was designed by Chicago architect John Thorpe, who was heavily influenced by Wright as well,” says Minner.

The 4,690-square-foot home has four bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. The original garage is spacious enough to accommodate modern cars.

“The current owners have a Mercedes van, and it fits in there nicely,” says Minner.

Porch view of downtown Seattle


As beautiful as the home is, its most fabulous feature might be the back porch. “The view from the porch is pretty incredible,” says Minner.

You can see straight to downtown Seattle. How’s that for a view?
