It's Official: Frank Lloyd Wright's Winslow House Lists for $2.4M

New, 5 comments


The stately William Winslow House, Frank Lloyd Wright's first totally independent commission, has hit the market after two months of buildup. The sellers disclosed their intension to list in October, and the property has since been a magnet for Wrightophiles eager for a glimpse of the architect's stunning work— hidden as it's been for 55 years. The 5,000-square-foot River Forest home plays with horizontal orientation on a large lot, but wouldn't be considered full-blown Prairie. Its main entry and covered drive borrow the stupendous doors and arches of mentor Louis Sullivan. Interiors, pictured here, feature art glass windows, four fireplaces, elaborate build-in seating, bronze and iron ornamentation, and a rotunda. Also of note: the live-in carriage house and sculpted lawns and walkways. The ask is $2.4M, which puts it in the class of the Isadore Heller House in Hyde Park and the Avery Coonley House in Riverside.
