Frank Lloyd Wright 1953 House Asks $455K After Restoration

The cheapest Frank Lloyd Wright design for sale in the country right now

Location: Galesburg, Michigan

Price: $455,000

Frank Lloyd Wright fans take note: a genuine three-bedroom Usonian home by the American master architect is on the market in Galeburg, Michigan, located about an hour east of Lake Michigan. As Realtor reports, the historic Eppstein House was built in 1953 as part of a planned Usonian community originally supposed to contain 21 homes for employees of a local pharmaceutical company—only four ended up being built.

The home, full of signature Wright touches like a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, built-ins, and skylights, has been nearly completely restored by the current owner, who enlisted the same firm that restored Wright's Westcott House in Springfield, Ohio. At the end of February, the 2,250-square-foot house got its latest price chop, from $469,900 to $455,000. According to the agent, this is the cheapest Frank Lloyd Wright home for sale in the country right now—it's certainly a bargain compared to these multi-million dollar asks in the Chicago area. But considering that the median home sale price in the town is just $155,000, it will take a true Wright fan to pull the trigger. (Did we mention there's a pool?)
