Located in a Chicago suburb

If you’ve been looking for a starchitect home on the market, look no further than this five-bedroom, three-bath designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. The 3,996-square-foot W. Irving Clark house is located in La Grange, a suburb of Chicago, Illinois, and the home’s design is believed to be a collaboration between E. Hill Turnock and Frank Lloyd Wright, built for attorney W. Irving Clark in 1892.

At the time, both Wright and Turnock were draftsman at the firm Adler and Sullivan, and the home is one of Wright’s earlier residences. Despite remodels over the years, the house still features plenty of Wright influence, including original features like four wood-burning fireplaces, leaded and stained-glass windows in the living and dining rooms, and authentic light fixtures in the family room and hallway.

The home also boasts extensive woodwork, pocket doors, built-ins, hardware, and a gorgeous screened-in porch. On the second floor, a mezzanine leads to four bedrooms with a large master suite and walk-in closet. Other perks include a coach house, an additional bedroom on the third floor, and a recreation room.

Want to make this your own personal Frank Lloyd Wright dream house? 211 South La Grange Road is on the market now for $1,199,000.
