The Skinny: Designed by the legendary architect Frank Lloyd Wright in 1955 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1991, the Gerald B. and Beverley Tonkens House was listed for the first time ever this week, with an asking price of $1.788M. The Tonkens House is set on more than four acres, down a long Cherokee red drive, behind a Wright-designed gate. Sold with much of the home's original, custom-made furniture intact, the house was built by Eric Lloyd Wright, who acted as contractor and lived in Cincinnati for 18 months to oversee construction. The Tonkens House measures some 3,100 square feet, with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, while a more traditionally styled guest cottage offers additional accommodations.
