Frank Lloyd Wright House Finds Buyer After Four Years on the Market

New, 15 comments

A historic Highland Park home designed by Frank Lloyd Wright has finally sold after spending over four years on the market and receiving a dozen price cuts during that time. The George Madison Millard House officially sold yesterday for $687,500, a price well below the initial asking price of $1.399 million. As the Prairie style house languished on the market for years, preservationists and Frank Lloyd Wright-philes became increasingly concerned about the house's future as the owners had received a conditional approval to demolish the house in October. In a classic Wright fashion, the earthy house features a flat roof line and a collection of art glass windows — 68 of them. While the house isn't exactly in the clear just yet, the seller's broker has told the Tribune that they believe the new owners plan on keeping the house in tact.
