A once-in-a-generation opportunity and a truly remarkable offering. 

We are thrilled to present not one but two iconic, neighboring Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Usonian homes. Never in the history of Frank Lloyd Wright architecture have two neighboring homes been offered together in one sale -- the Samuel & Dorothy Eppstein and the Eric & Pat Pratt homes.

Frank Lloyd Wright homes

Nestled in the prestigious 5-home Galesburg Country Homes, aka "The Acres" community, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is a beautiful 70-acre setting with mature trees, rolling hills, and loads of serenity and situated in the same region as Wright's Meyer May House in Grand Rapids, the Gilmore Car Museum in Hickory Corners, and the lovely beach towns of South Haven and Saugatuck.

Hawthorne Dr 11090 Galesburg

Both the Eppstein and Pratt houses are stunning representations of Wright's Usonian vision and beautiful examples of mid-century architecture. Each home was constructed by the original homeowners under the supervision of Wright himself. As such, the iconic properties are meticulously crafted, thoughtfully, and gloriously restored by their current owners.

Contrary to many of Wright's homes, these two still have their original footprints. From a technical perspective, both homes have been lifted to the 21st century. Both homes are wonderful examples of Wright's signature design principles -- seamlessly blending nature, form, and function. From the organic integration of the houses with their surroundings to the innovative use of space, each house is both an architectural gem, a unique piece of artwork, and a comfortable, warm, livable space ready for new owners to create lasting memories.

Flooded with natural light, the 1953 Eppstein House, located at 11090 Hawthorne Drive, is gracious and welcoming with its low-slung profile, horizontal lines, and expansive windows truly marry outdoor-indoor living. A gorgeous, 10-foot floor-to-ceiling glass facade opens to an incredible terrace that overlooks a peaceful meadow, an expanse of green and blooming wildflowers. Two additional terraces flank the home, perfect for outdoor entertaining or taking in the woodland views. The interior includes 2 amazing and comfortable living spaces, complete with a fireplace and beautifully restored built-in FLW-designed furniture. Three large bedrooms, each nestled into the exterior berm, provide cozy and restful retreats. The home is a harmonious blend of materials, warm and inviting interior spaces, and a seamless connection between indoor and outdoor living areas. Its exterior structure, concrete and masterfully restored mahogany detail and welcoming terraces are simply gorgeous. This is an amazing opportunity to live in a rare property that has captivated admirers for decades.

Adjoining the Eppstein property by lovely pastureland, the 1951 Eric and Pat Pratt House at 11036 Hawthorne Drive, beckons with its distinctive design, featuring clean lines and a meticulously restored mahogany exterior. Driving up to the residence from "The Acres" single lane path, the property is immediately recognizable -- 2,200 square-foot residence includes an expansive single level, 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, a lovely library/music room, and a larger, common entertainment space complete with 10-foot ceilings, floor to ceiling windows and a beautiful fireplace - just stunning. The glorious, cantilevered overhang is indicative of the Usonian style, as are the floor-to-ceiling windows and glass doors that soften the lines between interior and exterior/greenspace. Adjoining the main residence, there is a sizable workshop/office/studio that once served as the original owner's pottery studio. Like the Eppstein House, the Pratt residence is welcoming and peaceful, with an open floor plan and cozy, calming bed chambers. The outdoor space is extraordinary, with multiple terraces, beautiful views, and the occasional deer and playful fawns that thrive in the enormous, park-like setting.

Both homes embody the timeless elegance of Wright's vision, where every detail has been carefully crafted to create an atmosphere of serenity and beauty. From the innovative use of space-saving built-ins to the integration of unique architectural features, these properties offer a truly extraordinary living experience. There are endless possibilities - a private residence, a multi-generational compound, or an unparalleled investment opportunity.

As a shared owner of "The Acres", itself a historic landmark on the National Register of Historic Places, the new owners will enjoy the tranquility, privacy, shared community spaces, and the pride of being part of a unique legacy. The Acres is conveniently located halfway between Detroit and Chicago, with Grand Rapids airport at 65 miles distance, Kalamazoo airport at 11 miles, and Battle Creek at 16 miles.
