Frank Lloyd Wright's Famous Coonley House Officially Returns With $2.1M Ask

New, 7 comments

Earlier this week, Chicago Mag's Ian Spula hinted that Frank Lloyd Wright's famous Avery Coonley House in suburban Riverside would be returning to the market after a nearly three year long hiatus, and today the Prairie style home officially listed for $2.1 million. Completed in 1910, the Coonley House is notable for being one of the largest homes designed by Wright. The 6,000 square foot home used to oversee 10 acres of property with gardens designed by esteemed landscape architect Jens Jensen, however today the home only occupies one acre. Totally restored over the last 15 years, the home features many of Wright's trademark themes like its low hanging ceilings, art glass windows and long, flat rooflines. The home first listed five years ago while the Chicago area housing market was still quite shaky with a $2.89 million asking price. After sitting on the market for two years with no bites, the home delisted in October 2012. However, with the return of a stronger economy and housing market, the home and its lower ask may finally find a new owner. If you're on the fence about the home, be sure to check it out in person next month during the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust's architectural housewalk.
