The Eric and Pat Pratt House in Galesburg, Michigan is a single-story, Usonian I-style home designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1948. It is one of the five Wright-designed homes in The Acres, a community of homes built in the early 1950s on a 72-acre plot of land. Other Wright-designed homes in The Acres include the Curtis Meyer House, the Eppstein House and others.

The Pratt House and the Eppstein House are currently for sale and offered together for $4.5 million. Read more here.

The Pratt House is a low-slung, rectangular structure with a flat roof and cantilevered overhangs. The exterior is made of concrete blocks and wood, and the interior features a variety of natural materials, including brick, stone, and wood.

The Pratt House is also notable for its integration with the natural environment. The house is surrounded by a wooded lot, and it has a large patio and deck that offer views of the surrounding trees and landscape. Wright carefully designed the house to minimize its impact on the environment, and he used local materials whenever possible.

The Pratts built the house themselves, under the supervision of Wright.  They were drawn to Wright’s organic architecture, and they wanted a house that would be both functional and beautiful.

About Me

Yvonne Carpenter-Ross

FLW Enthusiast & Webmaster

Architecture and home design have always fascinated me. As a young girl I enjoyed drawing floor plans, rearranging my parent’s furniture and playing with Lincoln Logs and Legos.  My passion has always been the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright. Since I have been old enough to drive a car, I have visited Frank Lloyd Wright homes in the Chicagoland area and attended the Wright Plus house walks. Now, as co-owners of Northern Sky Designs, my husband & I are able to combine our website design skills and FLW travels to bring you this website! Enjoy!
