Wright's 'Transitional' George Furbeck House Relists for $949K

New, 1 comment


Frank Lloyd Wright's diminutive and dynamic George Furbeck House has relisted for $949K. The listing went away for 13 months, returning last week with a price hike lifting it halfway back to its original 2010 ask of $1.1M. The 3,000-square-foot, 5-bed from Wright's "experimental and transitional phase" never looked better. The 1897 home, one of two Furbeck residences in the Prairie architecture hub of Oak Park, has "repeating octagonal room plans, turrets, chamfered brick, unique art glass, and quartersawn oak woodwork," per the listing. We also count the third floor's protruding dormer, enclosed porch, library, and gallery among the space's wonderful eccentricities. Designated an Oak Park landmark in 2002, recent improvements have targeted the home's HVAC system and brought interior colors closer to authenticity. Tip-of-the-hat to PrairieMod.
