Frank Lloyd Wright was an American architect, interior designer, writer, and educator, who designed more than 1,000 structures, 532 of which were completed. Wright believed in designing structures that were in harmony with humanity and its environment, a philosophy he called organic architecture. This philosophy was best exemplified by Fallingwater (1935), which has been called “the best all-time work of American architecture”. Wright was a leader of the Prairie School movement of architecture and developed the concept of the Usonian home, his unique vision for urban planning in the United States. His creative period spanned more than 70 years.

Description: “Frank Lloyd Wright’s Sherman Booth House, situated on a serene and private ¾-acre lot in desirable East Glencoe. The home is insulated by a wooded ravine and country club–yet is steps to the beach, downtown and Metra. It has been beautifully maintained and is perfect for entertaining and everyday. It’s the largest of six Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Prairie homes in Ravine Bluffs and unique to most Wright homes being three stories high with a rooftop deck and outdoor fireplace with views of the Lake Shore Country Club. The stable and gardener’s cottage were incorporated into the main house, providing a much more spacious and modern first floor layout. Five bedrooms (with two master suites), four and a half baths and four fireplaces. A grand living room (22×36) leads into an all-season enclosed porch overlooking the ravine and beautiful gardens designed by owner. Many original Wright details inside and out, including square theme, sconces, hardware, art glass and built in bookshelves and seating. Carport for two cars.”
