Mapping the Country's 20 Frank Lloyd Wright Listings

View as Map

The celebrated architect and Prairie-Style progenitor Frank Lloyd Wright designed more than 500 completed structures over the course of his illustrious career, but few ever seem to be on the market simultaneously. Not anymore. More than 20 Wright works are on the market around the country, ranging from a monolitic gift shop in San Francisco (his only work in that city), to masterpieces like Chicago's Heller House, to the only gas station the great architect ever designed, all on the map (below).

1. Thomas Gale House

Copy Link
1027 Chicago Avenue
Oak Park, IL 60302

An example of Wright's early, pre-Prairie architecture, the Gale House was completed in 1892. Set in Chicago's historic Oak Park suburb, this unassuming Wright is asking $849K.

2. Emmond House

Copy Link
109 8th Avenue
La Grange, IL 60525

Also completed in 1892, the Emmond House is a near mirror image of the Gale, with strong Queen Anne influences. Respectfully updated, the house is currently asking $1.195M.

3. Warren McArthur House

Copy Link
4852 South Kenwood Avenue
Chicago, IL 60615

One in a pair of neighboring early Wright houses that are both for sale, the Warren McArthur House is a gambrel-roofed outlier on Wright's CV. The untouched interiors, however, are more recognizable as Wright. The McArthur is asking $1.298M.

4. George Blossom House

Copy Link
4858 South Kenwood Avenue
Chicago, IL 60615

Like its neighbor, the McArthur House, the Blossom House looks little like a typical Wright from the outside. Both were completed in 1892, but only the $1.288M Blossom received a Prairie-style garage addition from Wright in the early 1900s.

5. William E. Martin House

Copy Link
636 North East Avenue
Oak Park, IL 60302

The turn of the century brought Wright's Prairie style into full bloom and by 1902 he had completed the Martin House. Today, this cornerstone of the Frank Lloyd Wright Historic District is asking $1.295M.

6. George Madison Millard House

Copy Link
1689 Lake Avenue
Highland Park, IL 60035

By 1906, when he built this house for rare book dealers George and Alice Millard, Wright had firmly established his Prairie style. Immaculately preserved, but devoid of any original furnishings, the 3,000-square-foot home is listed for $1.15M. As a widow, Alice would later commission a California home from Wright, now known as the Millard House.

7. Millard House

Copy Link
645 Prospect Crescent
Pasadena, CA 91103

A prime example of Wright's use of textile block construction, the 1913 Millard House was once slated to be moved to Japan. After that deal fell through, the house is now listed for just under $5M.

8. Avery Coonley House - North Wing

Copy Link
281 Bloomingbank Road
Riverside, IL 60546

A Wright masterpiece completed in 1909, the Coonley House was disassembled at some point in its history, with the bedroom wing split off and sold as a separate residence. The celebrated public spaces and servants wing comprise this $2.25M offering.

9. Lindholm Service Station

Copy Link
202 Cloquet Avenue
Cloquet, MN 55720

One of the few commercial buildings on this list, the Lindholm Service Station was completed in 1956, a few years after the Lindholm family's private residence. The only gas station Wright ever designed, it is on the market for $750K.

10. R.W. Lindholm Residence

Copy Link
947 Highway 33
Cloquet, MN 55720

Commissioned by the same family that tapped Wright to design the Lindholm Gas Station, this 2,300-square-foot classic sits on 15 acres, abutting both a city park and a strip mall, and is asking just $690K.

11. George W. Furbeck House

Copy Link
223 North Euclid Avenue
Oak Park, IL 60302

A seminal example of Wright's transition to Prairie-style architecture, the Furbeck House was finished in 1897. The interiors are largely unaltered, but a 1920 addition changed the outward appearance. Today's asking price is $949K.

12. Bachman-Wilson House

Copy Link
1423 Millstone River Road
Hillsborough Township, NJ 08844

Finished in 1954, the Bachman-Wilson House is a product of Wright's Usonian vision, but is threatened by flooding. Originally slated to be moved to the Hamptons to escape the rising waters, it now may be headed to Italy, but is still available, according to the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy.

13. Gerald B Tonkens House

Copy Link
6980 Knoll Road
Cincinnati, OH 45237

Listed this year for the first time since its 1955 construction, the Tonkens House is a textile block masterpiece with a screaming red painted driveway and a guesthouse. Set on four acres, the three-bedroom house is asking $1.788M.

14. Maynard Buehler House

Copy Link
6 Great Oaks Circle
Orinda, CA 94563

Tucked away down a quiet cul-de-sac on the eastern outskirts of the Bay Area, the Buehler House features some of the most extravagant detailing available in a Wright house—gold-plated ceiling anyone?—and a price to match: $3.35M. The landscaping is by Henry Matsutani of Golden Gate Park fame.

15. V.C. Morris Gift Shop

Copy Link
140 Maiden Lane
San Francisco, CA 94108

The only Wright structure in San Francisco, this brick monolith was built in 1948 to house a gift shop and features an interior spiral similar to that found in New York's famous Guggenheim Museum. It is currently for sale, but the sellers haven't disclosed a price.

16. Ray Brandes House

Copy Link
2202 212th Avenue Southeast
Sammamish, WA 98075

A Usonian design of 1952, the Brandes House is one of three Wright houses in Washington State. At 1,600 square feet, it is no sprawling mansion, but sits on 3.2 private wooded acres, and is offered at $1.39M.

17. Andrew B. & Maude Cooke House

Copy Link
320 51st Street
Virginia Beach, VA 23451

Wright designed the Cooke House in 1953, but construction would not commence until just two months before his death, in 1959. Just a short walk from Atlantic beaches, the house sports a deep-water dock, gym, sauna, and a $3.75M price tag.

18. Isidore Heller House

Copy Link
5132 South Woodlawn Avenue
Chicago, IL 60615

A fixture of the Hyde Park neighborhood, Wright's 1897 Heller House represents one of the architect's early forays into the Prairie style. Designated a National Historic Landmark in 2004, the seven-bedroom mansion was just relisted for $2.5M.

19. Arnold Jackson House

Copy Link
N7669 Indian Hills Trail

Originally built in Madison, Wis. in 1957, the Jackson House was moved to this lakeside cul-de-sac in 1985. Today it operates as a bed & breakfast, but is also available for sale for $800K.

20. Como Orchard Summer Colony

Copy Link
634 Bunkhouse Road
Darby, MT 59829

Built as the Como Orchard Summer Colony and now known as Alpine Meadows Ranch, this 250-acre property was supposed to include more than a dozen Wright-designed structures, but today contains just a handful. The low-cost construction belies its current price tag: $5.6M.
