Redfin Honors Frank Lloyd Wright Remembrance Day By Showcasing Homes For Sale Designed By The Famed Architect

SEATTLE, April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In honor of Frank Lloyd Wright Remembrance Day, the 54 th anniversary of the passing of Frank Lloyd Wright, Redfin gathered a list of homes currently for sale that were influenced by the famed architect. Wright designed nearly 300 homes in his lifetime, a handful of which are available to purchase. The homes represent Wright's range of architecture, from prairie style homes in Chicago to Usonian-style homes in California and Washington. Photos of each home can be viewed in the Redfin Collection titled " Frank Lloyd Wright Homes."

Wright also taught and mentored students at the Frank Lloyd Wright architectural school in Arizona, who went on to design homes inspired by "the greatest American architect of all time." The homes designed by Wright himself range in price from $849,000 to $2.5 million. Homes designed by his students and followers range from $385,000 to $9.9 million.

Homes Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright:

1027 Chicago Ave , Oak Park, IL  List Price: $849,000 Beds: 5 Baths: 3.5 Listed by: Scott Berg, Berg Properties

This meticulously restored Prairie-style home was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1892. Known as a "bootleg" house, Wright designed it secretly while still working for his first architectural firm. It's now a historical landmark and a contributing property to the U.S. federally Registered Historic District in Oak Park due to its significance in Wright's budding career.

1689 Lake Ave , Highland Park, IL  List Price: $1,150,000 Beds: 4 Baths: 2.5 Listed by: Betsy Burke, Koenig & Strey

This home was built in 1906 for George Millard, a rare book dealer. The board and batten exterior is in line with Wright's prairie style, which is distinguished by a low-pitched hipped roof, long bands of windows, wide overhanging eaves and wood bands. The home's previous owners received a preservation award for their devotion to the home, which includes 68 art glass windows.

109 8th Ave , La Grange, IL  List Price: $1,165,000 Beds: 5 Baths: 1 Listed by: Margaret McSheehy, Historic Homes Realty

The 'Robert G. Emmond' house is yet another "bootleg" home secretly designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1892 while he was working for the Adler and Sullivan architecture firm. This Victorian style is less typical of Wright's other work and features an octagonal turret and an equilateral roof. The home also boasts five bedrooms, two fire places, a historically accurate kitchen, leaded glass windows, and several porches.
