Originally constructed in in 1928 Wilmette, Illinois, this Prairie style home has the rare distinction of occupying multiple addresses during its 88-year history. Designed by notable Frank Lloyd Wright disciple John S. Van Bergen, the three-bedroom structure found itself under threat of demolition a couple years ago. Purchased by preservation-minded architect Christopher Enck for just $10, the house gained local notoriety when it was disassembled into three large pieces, placed on trucks, and hauled to 2771 Crawford Avenue in nearby Evanston.
After a careful restoration of many of the home’s original features such as its Prairie-esque millwork as well as the addition of a number of modern upgrades, "the house that moved" hit the market earlier this week. For $625,000 you can own this historic and architecturally significant home with a very unique backstory.
