5. Ben Rebhuhn House, Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright

Ben Rebhuhn house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright

The Ben Rebhuhn House is the only home designed by Frank Lloyd Wright on all of Long Island. The house was designed in 1937 in Great Neck Estates for Benjamin and Anne Rebhuhn, a publisher and a dress designer, who published “morally progressive” content such as articles on birth control.

Wright designed the house in the Usonian style, which refers to Wright’s vision of American middle class homes that stress individuality and natural elements. The home features a two-story living room and library with floor-to-ceiling windows. The home was constructed from red cypress board and brick and red roof tile. At the time, the home was constructed at a cost of $35,000, which is over $600,000 in today’s dollars.
