Historic Frank Lloyd Wright House Sells After 17 Price Cuts

New, 2 comments

Amid a dizzying amount of early Frank Lloyd Wright designs on the market in Chicagoland recently (many of them having been PriceChopped), today Curbed Chicago finally has some good news to share: Wright's Robert Emmond house has, at last, sold for $800K, after surviving 17 price cuts in the last three years. Originally listed for $1.5M in 2011, the five-bedroom, one-bathroom house ultimately went for $1,000 above the most recent asking price of $799K, a nice gesture from the buyer that at least returns a little dignity to this 1892 so-called "bootleg" Wright work (because he designed it while working for the firm Adler & Sullivan).
