From elegant and stately mansions to modern, environmentally friendly abodes, southeastern Wisconsin is chock-full of one-of-a-kind homes for sale. Each week, Patch highlights one "Wow House" that caught our attention.

This week, it's a home at  1505 Valley View Drive in Mount Pleasant known as "Trilogy" that was designed by architect  John Randal McDonald, whose work is often compared to that of Frank Lloyd Wright. Also known as the John E. and Catherine Erskine House, the home has been featured on tours of homes designed by Wright and architects like him.

According the website  Wright in Wisconsin, Trilogy " is designed on an equilateral triangular grid, with triangularity as a repeated design motif throughout the entire home."

The home features stone walls, Philippine mahagony paneling and trim, and a stone fireplace surrounded by a pool and garden. Located at the end of a cul-de-sac, the home overlooks a ravine and the Root River, providing privacy, tranquility and spectacular views for its occupants, Wright in Wisconsin says.

A triangular roof sunwell permits natural light into the very center of the house into a small pond, raised fireplace and stairway to the lower level.

Built in 1955, the home is being offered by  BuyHomes.com for $435,000. It has four bedrooms, four full bathrooms and four half-baths. To schedule a showing, contact Corey Scholtka at 414-940-5555.
