If you have $5.6 million to spare, or even $649,000, one of the 20 homes designed by Frank Lloyd Wright that are currently for sale in the United States could be yours.
"'It is a good time to buy a Wright house because there is a variety of prices and locations,' said Janet Halstead, executive director of the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy, a preservation group."
While such homes can be a good investment, pitfalls abound. "Buyers tempted by the idea of owning a piece of architectural history should remember that it's rarely as straightforward as winning a bidding war," warns Lublin. "Many of the homes by Mr. Wright pose challenges. The architect favored small kitchens and closets—at odds with current tastes—and usually omitted basements. And some of these homes need the maintenance and repairs required for any home built decades or even a century ago."
