One of my favorite houses in Oak Park’s Frank Lloyd Wright historic district is up for sale! It’s ‘favorite’ status is based solely on the exterior, and I’m not alone. It’s a popular dream house here in town. Listing price is $2.25 million.
The next owner should have to promise to hang ferns along the porch every year. They always look so perfect.
A peek inside!
It’s decorated inside in a sort of 90s/modern style and I can guess that the owners’ favorite color is lime green, but aside from the modernized kitchen, the bones of the house are largely intact. (And in the study, is that… is that a skeleton? Can it convey with the house?)
It has a #*$&ing conservatory, and an attic expansive enough for a game of basketball.
There’s also a coach house ready to be fixed up.
The property taxes alone are $50K/year, but it’s one of Oak Park’s largest and prettiest (and yes, most expensive) homes. Built in 1896 by EE Roberts, it boasts six bedrooms and five baths, sits in a great location, and has a whopping 7,325 square feet. You can find the listing right here.
