The Carr House, a Frank Lloyd Wright Usonian built in 1950, is the only Wright designed home in Illinois’s city of Glenview and it’s now available for sale.

The 1950 Carr House, a Frank Lloyd Wright Usonian design, is located on a secluded 3-acre lot in Glenview, IL  near an area known as The Grove. The 4-bedroom/3.1 bathroom home was just listed for sale at $1,695,000.

The Carr House highlights Wright’s blurring of interior and exterior spaces. The property now includes an in-ground heated pool surrounded by forested greenery.
