Coonley House, by Frank Lloyd Wright

Image GalleryBuilt in 1907, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Avery Coonley House went on sale a couple of years ago and sold for nearly US$3 million. More importantly, the sale allowed pictures of the masterpiece in its current state to leak out to the internet.

It seems that apart from some previous owner having severed the link between the main house and the bedroom wing (which is a very big “apart from”!)  the remaining “main house” is looking in tip-top shape.

Almost as beautiful as the day it was born!
