Roland Reisley House was built in Pleasantville, New York in 1951. The third of the "Usonia Homes", this is a building on a hillside with a masonry "core" and wood siding. Roland Reisley was 26 when he built his home. The entrance is dominated by a dramatic wood cantilevered carport, which leads to an impressive yet unpresumptuous low-slung house with cypress paneling and indigenous stone.

The original house, built in 1951, had one bedroom, a study and a kitchen and a total of 1,800 square feet (170 m2). Wright returned five years later to design a 1,400-square-foot (130 m2) addition.
