Contemporary in his own time, Frank Lloyd Wright began the Prairie architectural movement. The home at 23 Wilderness Trail in Carmel is architect Tasos Kokoris’ interpretation of Wright’s classic style, from the stacked rooflines to the columned, double-door entry. Inside, there’s 2,705 sq ft of living space, with three bedrooms, three and a half baths, and tons of light from huge windows, many of which have transoms above them. Porches and decks on multiple levels let you enjoy the four acres of surrounding woods. The setting is private, yet surprisingly close to Metro-North, shopping, and other amenities. It’s a true getaway that’s not too far from everyday conveniences.
