On the Market: FLW Protégé Charles White-Designed Home Up for Grabs

April 30, 2014

This lovely Prairie-esque Glenn Ellyn home designed by Charles White and built in 1912 can be had for $1.25 million. Not quite a Wright, but close enough, this five bedroom, four bathroom home may look familiar to fans of Frank Lloyd Wright’s designs. Charles White began his architecture career in Chicago as a draftsman for Wright before beginning his own studio just a few years before this home was built. Though the house was expanded at some point, and has received a new kitchen and bathrooms, the home does sport some beautiful art glass doors and a spacious solarium overlooking the backyard. Not completely original, nor entirely gutted of its past, this home would be the perfect for vintage lovers looking for something with modern amenities.
