If you’re a fan of the Prairie School movement popularized by architects like Frank Lloyd Wright, Walter Burley Griffin, and Dwight Perkins, among many others, then you’ll definitely want to take a look at the listing for this gorgeous house in suburban Hinsdale. Built in 1901, the listing notes indicate that this home’s design comes from the architects Robert Closson Spencer Jr. and Horace S. Powers.
The house boasts many key Prairie School elements with earthy finishes, large fireplace, and many art glass windows. There’s a lot to appreciate here, and judging by the photos, much of the house appears to be in excellent shape and well preserved. The listing agent does mention that the main living room space was modeled after the one in Frank Lloyd Wright’s Francis W. Little House in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. And it’s an almost spot-on replica.
There’s a lot more to this one beyond the interiors. The surrounding grounds are nicely manicured and there are various outdoor spaces for sitting and relaxing. True to the Prairie School ethos, this house is a true integration of the outside and inside. This stunning Prairie Schooler has just entered the market and can be had for $1.899 million.
