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

4858 S Kenwood Ave and 4852 S Kenwood Ave , Chicago, IL  List Price: $1,288,000, $1,298,000 Beds: 5, 6 Baths: 3.5, 3 Listed by: Louisa M McPharlin, Coldwell Banker Residential

These are two neighboring homes designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1892. The homes, known as the Warren McArthur and George Blossom homes, the exteriors of each home are very different, but the interiors are similar, with rounded doorways, art glass windows and built-in furniture.

2202 212th Ave SE , Sammamish, WA List Price: $1,390,000 Beds: 3 Baths: 1.75 Listed by: Sammuel Cunningham, Realogics Sotheby's Int'l Rlty

This home was not only designed by Wright, it also comes fully furnished with pieces created by the architect. It was built in 1952 in the Usonian-style, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Structures. The home sits on 3.2 wooded acres and features large floor-to-ceiling windows to bring the outside in, the essence of Wright's style.

259 Redwood Rd , San Anselmo, CA  List Price: $1,999,000 Beds: 2 Baths: 2 Listed by: Douglas DelFava, Frank Howard Allen- Kenwood

This Usonian-style home will remind any Wright fan of Taliesin West, Wright's personal residence in Scottsdale, Arizona. It was designed for Robert Berger, a mechanical engineer, and his wife, Gloria. Robert and his family built the entire home using stone, glass, wood and concrete, which blend in with the colors and shapes of the surrounding landscape.

5132 S Woodlawn Ave , Chicago, IL     List Price: $2,500,000 Beds: 7 Baths: 4 Listed by: Diane Silverman, Urban Search Corp of Chicago

This 115 year old Hyde Park, yellow Roman brick beauty was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1887. With sixteen rooms, seven bedrooms, and 6,100 square-feet, it's a grand homage to classical architecture, and marked a transformation of Wright's own personal style. Dramatic details include the use of geometric stained glass windows throughout all three floors, high vaulted ceilings, and to keep things modern, a working elevator.
