Described as one of Wright’s “largest Usonian homes,” it was listed for $725,000. The home is located on about 3-acres next to a bluff and a ravine that overlooks the Root River and Colonial Park, the listing said. The home’s design blends into nature with its great room cantilevered over the ravine.
