Curbed Chicago: You Can Own a Frank Lloyd Wright Landmark for Under $250,000

River Forest’s Foster House and Stable were originally built back in 1900.

While Chicago has more Frank Lloyd Wright-designed buildings than anywhere else in the world, purchasing one of those properties often comes with an expensive price tag. However, according to an article in Curbed Chicago, there’s an original Frank Lloyd Wright home that’s currently on the market for $239,900.

The River Forest home, which was designated a Chicago landmark back in 1996, was built in 1900. Known as the Foster House and Stable, the prairie home features Japanese influences and steeply pitched rooftops, which isn’t something that Frank Lloyd Wright was traditionally known for. The home was originally designed for Stephen Foster, a real estate attorney who worked with developers across the West Pullman neighborhood.

The Foster House and Stable appear to be pretty well preserved, but the owners who purchase the property will have to do some work to get it back into top shape. They’ll also have to work with the city while making any changes to the home to ensure that it stays true to the landmark’s original design.
