A Frank Lloyd Wright home in Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin is on the market for the first time, listed for $725,000.
The six-bedroom, 6.5-bath home sits on a bluff overlooking the Root River and Colonial Park, about 25 miles south of downtown Milwaukee.
It is known as one of Wright’s “greatest Usonian homes,” according to the listing. The house, known as the Keland House, was built in 1956. It was commissioned by Willard and Karen Johnson Keland — the daughter of HF Johnson Jr., who for decades served as president of Racine-based SC Johnson & Son Inc.

The Tony Veranth Team is listing the home, and photos by Chris Wohlgefahrt show the unique architecture inside. The great room is cantilevered over the cliff, a distinctive feature of Wright’s style.
Johnson commissioned Wright in 1936 to design the company’s headquarters. Wright later designed the SC Johnson Research Tower as well as the Johnson family home, Wingspread, which is now a retreat and executive conference center.
