There's something special about a Frank Lloyd Wright home—after all, Wright was one of the most iconic architects of all time. Now, Frank Lloyd Wright homes are scattered throughout the U.S and can be rented, visited, and even bought—including two located on a private island. Now, fans of Wright's have another opportunity to live in one of his creations: A Frank Lloyd Wright original has just been put on the market in Illinois. The home is listed for $900,000, and you'll want to snatch it up fast.
Known as the Baker House, the home is located in the Chicago suburb Wilmette, and it's just two blocks away from the shores of Lake Michigan—perfect for those who enjoy all kinds of water sports, boating, swimming, and just relaxing on the shore. Like many of Wright's homes, the Baker House is built into its surrounding landscape, with large, Japanese-influenced windows offering views of the surrounding nature.
The home features five large bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, and three fireplaces scattered throughout the house for you to snuggle up by during the colder months. Interiors throughout are in Wright's signature Prairie Style.
One of the best parts of the house is located on the second floor: a master suite that comes with its own fireplace and a private porch that looks out onto the grassy backyard. The property comes with a small carriage house—that can also work as a garage—on the property for even more storage or lodging options. The Baker House is a National Registered Landmark and is also a protected Wilmette Historic Home.
