Architectural Craziness

For all the blingy vomit and "luxury" in top tier real estate, particularly in runaway big city markets, Wall Street Journal readers elected a gorgeous Wright-influenced, pagoda-crowned Riverwoods home as house of the year. The playful property, designed by Wright apprentice Arthur Dennis Stevens, handily beat out 48 other "house of the week" honorees. The many tasty spaces are ruled by a cathedral-like great room w/ 39-foot ceilings, trees and boulders. And the Japanese gardens ain't bad either. On the market since June 2011, the ask has dropped almost $700K to $2M. [WSJ, previously]
