In case you didn't already know, Frank Lloyd Wright is basically the most famous American architect.

This is Fallingwater, an iconic house he designed in Pennsylvania.

The abode is in St. Louis Park, Minnesota, and it was built in 1960. In the 57 years since then, the inside and outside basically haven't changed at all.

Paul and Helen Olfelt commissioned Wright to design their home in 1958, and he worked on it until his death in 1959. The couple, now in their nineties, are finally unloading the property, which means this is the first time it's up for sale.

As a result, the masterpiece is both a time capsule of midcentury design and a perfectly preserved example of Wright's signature aesthetic.

The three-bedroom, two-bathroom house has tons of light, earth tones, and many other mainstays of Wright homes.

Some of it looks a little dated, TBH.

Its 3.77 acres of land don't hurt, either.

Plus, it features built-in furniture...

...and original Wright chairs.

Wright was big on designing all elements of a house, from the roof to the furniture, to make it all feel cohesive. That means every part of the house is pure Wright.

It even has a finished basement, a rarity for Wright houses!
