A Handsome Frank Lloyd Wright Home in Kansas City Asks $1.7M
A classic, Usonian home designed by Frank Lloyd Wright at 3600 Belleview Avenue in Kansas City, Missouri—one of two Wright homes in the city—is now being offered at $1,650,000.
The residence was built for Clarence Sondern in 1940. Originally only 900 square feet, the home was expanded to 2,965 square feet in 1948 at the request of the second owner, Arnold Adler. The Adlers reached out to Wright and commissioned an addition to the original structure. The work included a new entry, a carport, an extra bedroom, bathrooms, and additional living space. The house is set on a small hill, so the expanded living room was built a few steps down from the rest of the structure and features a higher ceiling as a result.

The Sondern-Adler House, as the home is known, features a flat roof with a cantilevered overhang, clerestory windows, and is constructed from red tidewater cypress and brick—adding an organic element to the L-shaped, Usonian design. Set on a 1.4-acre private lot and surrounded by greenery, the home is a simple and beautifully executed example of Wright’s work.
3600 Belleview Avenue is being listed for $1,650,000 by Tom Suther and Heidi Peter with the LOCATE Team at Reece Nichols.
