After a two year break from the market, the F.B. Henderson House from Frank Lloyd Wright has returned and is yet again seeking a buyer. A lot has changed in the last two years, and the real estate market in Chicago has all but fully bounced back from the Great Recession as construction workers are working to deliver thousands of new apartment units in the city this year alone. And seeing as it’s been a seller’s market in many areas around Chicago, it’s not a bad time to return to the market.
Built in 1901, the F.B. Henderson House is very emblematic of Wright's brand of Prairie style architecture and thankfully, the owners have done an outstanding job in preserving the house’s architectural integrity and making sure updates match the home’s style. And speaking of architectural details, this house boasts 80 art glass windows, three brick fireplaces, numerous original built-ins, maple floors, and wood-encased radiators.
But like many Frank Lloyd Wright homes, this one hasn’t had the easiest go on the market—it’s been on and off the market for the last ten years. The house was last available on the MLS back in the summer of 2015, and at the time, it was seeking $995,000. However, it returns this week asking $1.1 million.
