Located in Minneapolis, Minnesota is an almost overlooked Usonian gem. Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright for Henry J. Neils in 1949 the heavily gabled home, with its exquisite use of stone masonry both inside and out, sits unobtrusively on a secluded, wooded lot. Recently put on the market the home has had only two owners in the past 60 years and remains in remarkable, original condition. With the entrance almost hidden off the three space car port (more parking than normal for a Wright design) the 2500 square foot Neils House, with three bedrooms and three bathrooms, retains all of its Usonian character – from ample built-in seating to the terra cotta-colored polished concrete floors. A juxtaposition of angles and levels the Neils House, like all of Wright’s successful designs, breathes life and energy; creating a wonderfully timeless space.
