Frank Lloyd Wright Lovers, Now's Your Chance


If you've ever dreamed of owning a Frank Lloyd Wright house, you have more chances of making your dream come true than you might think. According to Inman News, there are 17 Wright properties currently on the market in cities around the country. Prices are a little steep, but then again, how often do you get a chance to own a piece of architectural history?

The work of Frank Lloyd Wright tends to inspire almost slavish devotion from his admirers, many of whom undoubtedly dream of owning a home designed by the iconic architect.


Turns out, opportunities to buy Wright-designed homes are more plentiful than one might think, according to Janet Halstead, executive director of the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy in Chicago, a nonprofit that works to protect his designs from demolition.

One way to achieve that goal is to help sellers of Wright properties find buyers who will appreciate them and maintain and restore them, Halstead said. Toward that end, the conservancy has developed a service to help owners and their real estate agents market the properties through a page on its Web site,

At the moment, the conservancy's "Wright on the Market" page has 17 Wright-designed properties listed (including one gasoline station).
