If you appreciate a fine piece of architecture when you see it, then you are likely drawn to Frank Lloyd Wright’s beautiful homes. But here’s a double-take, because this home for sale wasn’t designed by Wright, but rather by his apprentice, E. Fay Jones.
Located in Memphis, Tennessee, this 4,300 square foot property is currently listed for almost $1.8 million. This mid-century estate sits on 1.27 acres, complete with four bedrooms and three and a half baths. But beyond the beautiful physicality of the home lies the rich history that stems back to Wright, according to Curbed.
With a lengthy career of his own, Jones lets Wright’s influence shine through many physical elements—from the open floor plan to the low-pitched roof and overhanging eaves. And there’s no denying the Prairie style incorporation seen through the cypress wood interior everywhere you turn. Arkansas field stone and flagstone floors are also seen throughout the space, complimenting the wood with another natural feature.The large floor-to-ceiling windows surrounding the structure lets natural light pour into the space, connecting the interior to the natural tree-filled exterior. And if the estate didn’t already feel lightweight, the high ceilings only add to the airy ambiance. Exposed beams sprawl across the ceiling, and stone fireplaces add an extra element of coziness.
All in all, this architectural masterpiece is great for anyone who dreams of owning a Wright-inspired home at a price that is much lower than what they usually go for.
