Crain's Chicago Business reported last Tuesday that one of the three Frank Lloyd Wright 'bootleg' homes in Oak Park sold for $750,000.
Wright helped design the Chicago Avenue home, just a block away from his home and studio, while working for architect Louis Sullivan. Wright's style is evident in the decorative touches on the glass and walls of the late 19th century home, accents notable in his Prairie Style work, Crain reports.
The Robert Parker house, above, was originally priced at $825,000 in March. The price was cut twice before being sold.
