Wright's F.B. Henderson House On The Market For $1.33M

New, 1 comment


Among the most emblematic of Prairie style architecture is Frank Lloyd Wright's F.B. Henderson House in Elmhurst, on the market since late August. It couldn't evade detection forever and, thanks to PrairieMod's tip-off, we have all the stats and pretty pictures for you today. The Henderson House was built in 1904 under partnership with Webster Tomlinson (the business end), and it happens to be a mirror image of Wright's Warren Hickox House in Kankakee. The delicate masterpiece is laden with 80 art glass windows, three brick fireplaces, original built-ins, maple floors, wood-encased radiators, and a 60-foot "open expanse" that fuses living room, dining room, and library. And then there's the sensational 27-foot entry hallway that forms an entire wing of the house when seen from the street. The half-acre lot is more than enough to buffer the sprawl. An aside: Notice the waist-height photography, on account of Wright's notoriously low ceiling heights. Off the market for two-and-and-a-half years, the listing returned with an ask of $1.4M, now down to $1.33M.
