A stunning Frank Lloyd Wright Usonian-style house is for sale in Clearwater — cash only
A home designed by one of Frank Lloyd Wright's protégés is now on the market in Clearwater.
Located at 1622 Sunnybrook Lane, this 4,422-square-foot gem was built in 1961 and was inspired by Wright's Usonian homes, which usually were L-shaped to fit around a garden terrace, and often featured a carport, flat roofs and large cantilevered overhangs. The homes were also considered to be the origin of America's ranch house boom of the 1950s. Arguably the best local example of this is Wright's Usonian House, located at Florida Southern College in Lakeland.
This particular Usonian-style home was designed by architect Joseph Louis McClung, a student of Wright who was responsible for a number of similar homes in the area, and a few notable Tampa Bay buildings, including the nearby St. John's Episcopal Church.
The McClung home has five bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms, as well as multiple terraces, restored floors, two dens, an office, an art studio, a koi pond, a four-car carport, a safe room, a handball court, a honkin' Viking gas range and a 66-panel solar system.
The current asking price is $1,100,000 (cash only, as is) and the listing agent is Martie Lieberman of Premier Sothebys.
