Frank Lloyd Wright's Woolley House Finds Buyer in Five Days


Frank Lloyd Wright's Francis J. Woolley House in Oak Park has been spared the miserable fate that many other Chicago-area Wright homes have had to endure, as it has found a buyer in just five days after being listed. It's not uncommon for Wright homes in the greater Chicagoland area to languish on the market for months, or even years. And more often than not, the landmark homes need a lot of attention, requiring a considerable amount of time and resources to get them to a point where they are livable. However, the Woolley House was move-in ready and did not appear to need substantial renovations. Located in Oak Park, the home is considered one of Wright's "bootleg" homes, which were commissions that Wright took under the table while still employed by Adler & Sullivan. It listed last Wednesday for $1.199 million dollars and found a buyer over the weekend as the listing was updated this morning to reflect its change in status.
