It’s the only FLW house in this state and what’s more, the 1950s Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Dudley Spencer House in Wilmington, Delaware, USA is on the market.
The 1956 Dudley Spencer House, also known as Laurel, is on the market for the very first time. A quick glance at the shots on the listing suggest some updating might be required, but it also shows a Frank Lloyd Wright design packed with original features. That’s the important thing here.
It’s hard to judge the overall design by the shots, but the agent describes it as having a ‘beautiful curvilinear form’, which creates open living space and views from every room.
A central eat-in kitchen serves as ‘the hub of Wrights built-in furniture designs’, which he also incorporated into every room to provide ample seating, living and storage space. That’s a huge plus. Talking of rooms, you’ll find three bedrooms and two bathrooms here, as well as that eat-in kitchen, a living room, dining room. family room, utility and laundry.
Lots of space outside too, over six acres apparently, predominately woods, but with a creek, sculpture garden paths, terraces and patio, all of which blends with the inside space. That’s what good design is all about.
If you fancy a move to Delaware, you’ll need $1,350,000, which is around £878,000. More images below.
