We’ve seen the claim “Inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright” thrown around countless times over the last few decades. Some, better than others, do a fantastic job capturing Wright’s iconic architectural styling and interior design. This particular residence in Orland Park, Illinois is one of the best “inspired by” Wright homes we’ve come across. Designed by an unknown architect and masterfully built in 2006, the more than 15,000 square foot residence is said to have drawn inspiration from a dozen different Wright projects with interiors inspired by the Robie House in Hyde Park, the Hollyhock House in Los Angeles, the Meyer May House in Grand Rapids and Wright’s own home and studio in Oak Park. The result is a home of great beauty with exceptional quality and attention to detail. The extensive use of wood, thin roman brick, spectacular leaded glass “light screens” as Wright called them and custom furniture, both built-in and freestanding, channel Frank Lloyd Wright’s styling to a tee. By building the home from scratch, the owners were able to add their personal touches and modern amenities, like 20-foot ceilings in the great room, large entertaining areas and walls of windows to allow for natural light and a view of the creek in the backyard. There are a total of four bedrooms, five full and one half bathrooms throughout. The residence sits on a 0.54 acre property in coveted Silo Ridge Estates. It’s on the market for $3.5 million with Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty.
