Paul and Helen Olfelt asked Frank Lloyd Wright to design a home for them in St. Louis Park, Minnesota nearly 60 years ago. Now in their 90s, the Olfelts have put the house on the market for the first time ever, and the listing reveals that Wright designed not only the house itself but also the furniture and fixtures within in.

Offered for $1.395 million by Barry Berg and Chad Larsen at Coldwell Banker Burnet, the three-bedroom, two-bathroom, brick-and-stone house near downtown Minneapolis includes 2,647 square feet of living space set on 3.77 acres. Head here for a 3D walkthrough and scroll down for a look inside the house.

1. The house is in St. Louis Park, Minnesota, near Minneapolis.


2. Frank Lloyd Wright started the design in 1958 and the construction was completed in 1960.


It's one of Frank Lloyd Wright's "Usonian" homes, which you can read more about here.

3. The house has an open floor plan.


4. Wright's signature touches are evident in the dining room furniture.


5. And these chairs and this lamp


The architect designed desks, tables, chairs, lamps, and shelves in the house.

6. The glass panels allow light to fill the living areas.


7. The kitchen is full of angles.


Wright designed the kitchen island and the bar stools around it.

8. Here's one of the three bedrooms.


9. The finished basement is reportedly uncommon for a Wright-designed house.
