Hi all: First things first - mystery solved - I can confirm the final sales price was $1,350,000. Secondly - to DRN - thank you. I respectfully partially disagree - I viewed the house last year. The concrete floors throughout (except the master bedroom) require serious conservation (possible complet...

*SOLD* - JAMES CHRISTIE HOUSE IN NJ?!?

Hi all: I just noticed on "Wright On The Market" that the James B. Christie House in Bernardsville, NJ is now listed as 'sold' as of 2/20/20?

Hi Peter: Thank you for your kind message. Usually, I love articles dripping with cynicism, jealousy and schadenfreude. They're like my three main food groups (lol). But I totally get what you're saying - it's snarky. t

Hi Dan: Interestingly, a good friend of mine (and an amazing singer) who lives in NYC named Alex(andra) Sweeton is directly related to the original clients of Wright who built your house. Small world. Yes, would enjoy chatting one day for sure... Very best, Todd

Nothing remotely 'Wright' about this pair of lamps. A lovely, but unremarkable design. You might try poking around on Etsy or 1stdibs, perhaps... t
