Location: Elmhurst, Illinois

Price: $1,250,000

Marked by an open living area wrapping around a central chimney, as well as plenty of oak woodwork and art glass, this 1903 home in the Chicago suburb of Elmhurst captures the feel of Prairie-style homes even without the flat rooflines commonly associated with the distinctly American school of architecture. Designed by Walter Burley Griffin, a Frank Lloyd Wright collaborator in the early 1900s and architect of Australia's capital city, Canberra, the nearly 6,000-square-foot house retains built-ins, three fireplaces, and stunning hardwood floors throughout.

More modern updates can be found in the kitchen and lower level media room and second kitchen. The five-bedroom house sits on a corner lot that measures 0.76 acres and was last sold in 1998 for $733K.
