James B. Christie House—the first of only four Wright-designed residences in the Garden State—slashes its price to entice buyers.

Designed in 1940, this handsome Frank Lloyd Wright house bears the iconic hallmarks of Usonian design with its low-slung form, strong connection with the outdoors, and reliance on native materials including brick, cypress, and redwood throughout.

Set far back on a wooded 7.2-acre property in Bernardsville, New Jersey, the James B. Christie House takes advantage of its private location with ample glazing.

Known as the James B. Christie House and Shop, the residence had been in possession of its eponymous owner for only half a decade before it was sold to Sultan Amerie, a government official from Iran who lived there with his family for 40 years.

The single-story, Usonian house was based off a two-by-four-foot grid that informed the 2,000-square-foot, L-shaped plan. 

The living room and dining area features original built-in seating, tables and chairs designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.
