Elmhurst, IL 1901
Own a piece of history and a work of art: Frank Lloyd Wright’s Frank B. Henderson House, a distinctive Prairie-style home in the heart of Elmhurst’s Historic District. This 5,500-square-foot property has massive formal rooms consisting of a long gallery/foyer, a library with built-ins, a living room with an open hearth, arched Roman brick fireplace and a formal dining room with built-ins. The rooms are complemented by ribbons of original stained-glass windows. The kitchen retains its original shape, but with 20th century roll-out cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and a built-in bench. The second-floor master suite has a fireplace, built-ins and a master bath. There are three more bedrooms, one with a fireplace, on the second floor plus a hall bath. A maid’s quarters or office is located just below the kitchen on the way to the lower level. This completely finished level includes a laundry room, wine cellar, full bath, additional bedroom, open game area and rec room. The estate-like grounds are professionally landscaped with pathways and an outdoor terrace with built-in planters. This home, designed in 1901, is on the National Register of Historic Places.
