It was the first home legendary architect Frank Lloyd Wright designed after quitting his job at his mentor Louis Sullivan's firm and going off on this own. And it could be yours (if you somehow have $2.4 million at your disposal).
The William Winslow House, located at 515 Auvergne Place in River Forest, Ill., was designed by Wright at the age of 26 in 1893 and is set to be listed for sale with Jameson Sotheby on Dec. 16, Chicago magazine reported Wednesday.

The 5,036-square-foot home's last owners were was last sold in 1958 to Bill and June Walker (who bought it in 1958). Their son, Peter, is selling the family home after his mother died earlier this year, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. Bill Walker died in 1994.
Peter Walker told Patch the home was "built for entertaining" and its unique features, marking Wright's first foray into the Prairie style for which he is known, have been kept in pristine condition.
"Nothing on the planet Earth looked like this at the time—nothing," Walker told Patch.
The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1970 and has not been viewed publicly since 1979.
