Usonian Home In New York Designed by a Frank Lloyd Wright Apprentice Asks $1.4M

About an hour north of New York City sits the Usonia Historic District, a planned community of homes that were built in the late 1940s on a 100-acre rural tract in Westchester County. While the neighborhood’s layout was planned by legendary architect Frank Lloyd Wright, the homes were designed by a handful of Wright’s peers and apprentices, including Paul Schweikher, Aaron Resnick, and David Henken.

Henken—one of Wright’s apprentices—served as the primary coordinator of the project and designed more than a quarter of the district’s houses. One such masterpiece is the three-bedroom, two-bathroom property located at 10 Usonia Road, which was designed by Henken in 1951.

The one-level dwelling has been meticulously preserved throughout the decades and has only switched ownership twice—most recently in 2009. The midcentury-modern home sits tucked away on a spacious one-acre lot, melding into its lush landscape.

Since acquiring the home, the current owners have carefully modernized the space while preserving the original character details, including the sleek, vaulted wood ceilings, skylights, windows, and cypress walls. “The home presents a calming environment to be in at any time,” says listing agent Brian Milton. “The sophisticated use of materials harmoniously blends the interiors with the outdoor elements, offering a peaceful oasis.”

The 1,904-square-foot residence features free-flowing gathering spaces centered around an oversized fireplace. The main living and dining area overlook the surrounding lawn, with the fully remodeled kitchen situated steps away. Each of the home’s three bedrooms provides direct access to the outdoors.
