Snag a 'Bootleg' Frank Lloyd Wright Home For Under $1M

New, 1 comment


When this La Grange, Ill. home designed by Frank Lloyd Wright originally made its debut on the market back in 2011, Curbed Chicago was quick to proclaim the $1.5M home "bootleg" based on both the fact that at the time Wright was working for the firm Adler and Sullivan, and because it doesn't quite match the late, great American architect's usual aesthetics. Still, the Robert Emmond House is back with a vengeance and a big ol' deflated price, now asking just $919K. The 2,600 square-foot, 1892 pad offers five bedrooms, two gas fireplaces, and a large side porch that looks invitingly sunny. And although the home has undergone some restoration, from the looks of the lovely arched doorways, ornate windows, and grand, pillared sitting room, not much of the original design has been dramatically altered. Furthermore—tremulous pedigree or not—this choice listing clocks in at the lower end of the price range most of Wright's other on-the-market homes fall into. More photos below and over on Curbed Chicago.
