One of Frank Lloyd Wright’s houses is officially available. The six-bedroom, 6.5-bath house in Mount Pleasant is on the market for the first time ever. The home, referred to as the Keland House, was first built in 1956 and was commissioned by Willard and Karen Johnson Keland. Sitting at 1425 Valley View Dr. the Keland House is decked out with wood paneling, exposed brick, and large windows, along with a greenhouse feature. It sits on the bluff of a ravine, overlooking the Root River along with Colonial Park.
Photos taken by Chris Wohlgefahrt show the unique Usonian architecture that Lloyd Wright used to refer to ‘America in general’ consisting of small, single story structures. The Usonian style also encapsulated the architects larger ‘vision for the landscape.’

The house in Mount Pleasant shows off quirks that the architect added to his layouts, like how the main room is only supported on one end, hanging over the ravine– a distinctive feature Wright became known for in his work.
An exposed fireplace, a built-in bar and a balcony are some of the home’s other intriguing features. So, if you’re in the market for a historic home, or looking to move to Wisconsin, this might be your chance!
