  • A Wisconsin home designed by Frank Lloyd Wright just hit the market for the first time in its history.

  • The Usonian-style residence, designed in 1954, is listed for $725,000.

  • Wright built hundreds of homes in his lifetime and has been called the greatest American architect of all time.

If you're in the market for a historic Frank Lloyd Wright home, a Wisconsin original was just listed for the first time in its history.

The house at 1425 Valley View Drive in Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, made its market debut last week, listing for $725,000.

Designed in 1954 and built two years later, the home was developed in the late architect's signature Usonian style. (Wright used the term "Usonia," an acronym of the United States of North America, to refer to the US.) This minimalist type of home, geared toward the middle class, is typically one-story with a low, horizontal roof and an emphasis on warm, earthy tones.

The residence has six bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms, according to its listing. It's 4,978 square feet and sits on 3.2 acres, situated on the bluff of a ravine overlooking the Root River and Colonial Park.

At $725,000, the property is well above the median home price in Mount Pleasant, which is roughly $300,000, according to Realtor.com.

Wright designed more than 1,100 architectural works in his lifetime, of which more than 500 were built, according to his foundation's website. In 1991, the American Institute of Architects honored him as the "greatest American architect of all time."
