The landmark John F. Palmer House in suburban Riverside has returned to the market this week with a price chop. Built in 1895, the house was designed by noted Prairie School architect Joseph L. Silsbee and features a mix of both Victorian and Tudor elements. While it's not been confirmed, there is some speculation that Frank Lloyd Wright, a contemporary and apprentice of Silsbee, may have helped design the house's family room. In its lifetime, the six bedroom, six bathroom house has acted a private residence, a bed and breakfast but is currently being used by nonprofit organizations. Since it was last purchased in 2008, the house has received a new roof, repairs to the porch as well as new plumbing and electrical. The house returned to the market last July with an asking price of $1.799 million but can now be had for $1.499 million — a number that is very close to its last sale price of $1.45 million.
