It’s a good time to be a Frank Lloyd Wright collector. His homes are hitting the market right and left. Now another of the legendary designer’s homes has listed, and this time it’s not too far from NYC.

One of only four homes Wright built in New Jersey has hit the market, and it’s the first and the largest of the four, according to 6sqft.

The 2,000-square-foot James B. Christie House at 190 Jockey Hollow Road in Bernardsville has hit the market asking $2.2 million. Built in 1940, Wright told his client to find a site with “as much individuality as to topography and features—stream, trees, etc. and as much freedom from adjacent buildings as is possible.”

Christie did just that. All of that nature has been preserved, meaning that the property features seven acres of secluded woodland.

The home last sold in 2014 for $1.7 million. It has recently received a new roof and heating system.
