Frank Lloyd Wright House for Sale

Midcentury modern architecture fanatics, here’s your chance to snatch a Frank Lloyd Wright home that just popped up on the market!

The Frank J. Baker house is 4,800 square feet and has five bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, and three fireplaces. The Prairie-style structure is located in Wilmette, IL, just 20 miles north of downtown Chicago and two blocks from Lake Michigan.

The catch? Priced at $899,900, this old house ain’t cheap—and it needs a lot of work. Wright first built the place in 1909, then added a second story with more bedrooms in 1922.

Architect Walter Sobel bought the house in 1957, and lived there until his death at the age of 101 in 2014. Family members have lived there since, but it’s now vacant and awaiting the right buyer.
