Over the past couple days, there’s been a string of iconic modernist homes put on the market. Now, a pretty incredible Frank Lloyd Wright is for sale. 2206 Parklands Lane, close to downtown Minneapolis, is a 3-bedroom, 2-bath home built in 1960. It’s made primarily of brick, stone and wood and set on a 3.77 acre lot. It’s stocked with some original furniture too. Check out the listing here.
"In September, 1958, we discussed the preliminary drawings of our home with Mr. Wright at Taliesin. He was very warm and friendly toward us, putting us quite at ease. He seemed anxious that we liked the house. He showed his pleasure over the house and seemed to encourage us with remarks as, “beautiful little nest.” He said the home grew from “within out” and yet was appropriate to the hill of the site. He took the time to discuss organic architecture. We proposed changes, which for the most part he accepted, since they did not interfere with his original concept. We proposed a basement for additional space under the living area. The preliminary drawings had all of the house on slab with no basement. Because of the existing grade, a basement could easily be achieved. He agreed but cautioned us never to put anyone down there. It would be all right for a shop and storage space but that would have to be all. We also wished not to have doors directly to the outside terrace from the bedrooms, in an effort to control the children. He agreed but told us not be so rigid with our children. He said that the children usually turn out just like the parents, “usually no better and no worse.”"
