This historic Frank Lloyd Wright–designed residence is located on 3.36 acres of wooded property at 865 Masonridge Road in Town and Country, Mo. Currently on the market for $1.2 million, it is listed by Andrew Dielmann and Ted Wight of Dielmann Sotheby's International Realty, an affiliate of Sotheby's International Realty.
Named the T.A. Pappas House for its first and only owners Theodore and Bette Pappas, it was designed in 1955 in Wright's Usonian Automatic style, a system Wright created to save buyers money in hopes that they could assemble their own homes. The process involved constructing houses entirely out of precast concrete blocks of various sizes laid without mortar. The T.A. Pappas house was constructed using 2-foot, terra-cotta-colored concrete blocks. The Pappas couple worked with Wright in the design process until his death in 1959 and did much of the construction work themselves, breaking ground in 1960 and completing the work in 1964.
After it's original completion, all expansions made for the Pappas family were undertaken by Wright's firm, Taliesin Associated Architects, which disbanded in 2003. The 2,310-square-foot house now comprises four bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and a living room that doubles as an outdoor terrace.
On the U.S. Department of the Interior's National Register of Historic Places, the T.A. Pappas House is one of only two of Wright's projects in St. Louis County and one of five in Missouri.
