Frank
Lloyd Wright
architectural
buffs will be interested in the recent listing of the George Furbeck
House in Oak
Park
at 223
N
Euclid Ave
. 
The home, listed
for $1,100,000

is significant in that it is
included in homes built during a three-year period of experimentation
in the late 1890s by the renowned architect that resulted in some of
the first fully modern style residential buildings. 
The experimental period bridged the construction of his
geometric applications of the classic Queen Anne styles seen in the Robert P
Parker
House
with the fully-mature
Prairie style seen in the Heurtley
House
, both
very near to
Frank Lloyd Wright’s Home & Studio and just less than a mile
from the George Furbeck House.>

And
your view across the street
is to the Cheney
mansion
,
which occupies the entire
block and sits amidst lush gardens and landscaping.
