Oak Park, IL 1909
The massive William H. Copeland House sits boldly atop a slight rise on a beautiful acre of land in the very heart of the Frank Lloyd Wright Historic District. The expansive veranda sets the stage for the big open rooms inside. From the magnificent geometric art glass entry, Wrights influence is felt immediately with the strong horizontal banding throughout the 1st floor & the rooms flow seamlessly from one to the other. The dining room features a Wright built-in with geometric art glass. Both the dining room and the oversize kitchen have access to a more informal eating porch that overlooks the park-like backyard. Traverse front or back staircase to the 2nd floor with it’s wide gallery hallway, 5 extra large bedrooms and an office. The basement has an additional bedroom, bath, game room & storage galore! The 1 bedroom, 1 bath Wright designed coach house features art glass, living room, dining room and kitchen. On a street full of architectural wonder, this unique home is one of Oak Park’s most outstanding architectural delights.
