Location: Shorewood, Wisconsin
Price: $349,900

In June, researchers confirmed that an unassuming, previously unidentified two-bedroom house in the Milwaukee suburb of Shorewood, is in fact an original Frank Lloyd Wright design. The 1,270-square-foot home, an affordable home prototype built for the American System-Built Homes company in 1917, is one of only 16 such homes still standing today (25 were built in total.) And it's got all the Wright signs: built-ins (mostly unaltered), long rows of casement windows, and flowing living and dining rooms surrounding the fireplace.

There were, however, a few conspicuous changes, including the addition of an enclosed porch and garage. While the original fair market value of the home was estimated at $225,100 before the Wright connection was established, the property just hopped on the market for $349,900, clearly angling for architecture buffs and Wright aficionados. Would you pay a FLW premium?
