Frank Lloyd Wright’s Francis Woolley House Relists for $1.2M

September 28, 2014

The nearby suburb of Oak Park is very well known for its inventory of homes designed by master architect Frank LLoyd Wright as the city hosts the world’s largest collection of Wright designed homes. And in its collection, Oak Park has homes from all phases of Wright’s career – from the so-called “bootleg” homes he designed while still employed by Adler & Sullivan to his Prairie style masterpieces that would garner him international acclaim. This particular home, the Francis J. Woolley House, was built in 1893 and represents a transitional period for Wright. Designed in the Queen Anne style, this home is one of several Wright bootleg houses in Oak Park. The home was clearly renovated at some point, and the listing mentions that the second and third floors have recently received new windows and hardwood flooring. It does however still sport some lovely art glass windows. This six bedroom, four bathroom Wright home first listed in 2009 for $1.15 million. Later in 2011, the home returned to the market with an ask of $989,000. It has just relisted today with a slightly higher ask of $1.199 million.
