An Urban-Modern Home Inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright Tucked Away in Kechi, KS

A stunning 5,535 sq. ft. urban-modern estate, inspired by the legendary architect Frank Lloyd Wright, is set to go under the hammer in an upcoming auction. Located in Kechi, minutes from East Wichita, this architectural gem sits on 26± peaceful acres and features an indoor pool, a private lake, and a 2,550 sq. ft. barn with a 2+ bedroom apartment.



The estate, known as "Thin Place Estate," is a masterpiece designed by Patrick Huff, a protégé of Bruce Goff. Goff, a prominent architect from Kansas, was highly regarded by Frank Lloyd Wright himself. A 1951 Life magazine article stated that Goff was "one of the few US architects whom Wright considers creative. He scorns houses that are 'boxes with little holes.'" Following Wright's principles, the home's design emphasizes harmony between human habitation and the natural environment. After an extensive 2-year, $1 Million+ renovation, the property retains its original modern lines and artful elegance.


"This home is truly a work of art," says the current sellers. "It's rare to find a property that embodies beautiful design with modern functionality and expansive acreage. The 'Thin Place Estate' is aptly named, as it has felt like a sanctuary to us." While the sellers have enjoyed years in this great oasis, they will be relocating out of state, and are excited for a new buyer to enjoy this one-of-a-kind property.


The estate's more unique features include an indoor saltwater heated pool with accordion glass doors opening from the kitchen, a dramatic living room fireplace, and large picture windows that bring the outdoors in. The primary suite boasts a wet room with a soaking tub and oversized dual-head shower and direct access to the pool. The lake, trees, and wild flowers provide a serene backdrop from all of the windows in the home.

Its location within the Kechi city limits, combined with 26+ acres of privacy, is unprecedented. The barn with nine horse stalls and a 2-bedroom apartment adds significant value, making it perfect for equestrians or those seeking a multi-generational living setup."


The auction presents a rare opportunity to own a piece of architectural history, modernized for contemporary living. Interested parties are encouraged to register as bidders to receive exclusive updates.
