Designed in 1958 by Frank Lloyd Wright, this home was built for Paul Olfelt and his family. As of 2011, Olfelt continues to own the home. While Wright died in 1959, the construction was carried out and completed in 1960 by Taliesin Architects. As of now, the home is not on the National Register of Historic Places, but there is a file at the Minnesota State Preservation Office.

The house features a dramatic carport that nearly touches the ground, drawing a line towards the entrance. The home is often characterized as a small home built into a hillside. View a picture of the home here.
