Frederick D Nicholas House (1906) for sale

Post by Paul Ringstrom »

A Flossmoor house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright 115 years ago as a Chicagoan’s weekend golf cottage is coming on the market March 19 for the first time since 1982. Keith Hult is asking $475,000 for the three-bedroom, 2,670-square-foot house built in 1906 on Brassie Avenue.

Interesting, this is the first time I hear about this house. It seems a low cost prairie style house...?? Unfortunately I see that outside looks good in general, but inside it has changed a lot through time. The kitchen, the ceiling, some floors, bathrooms, etc. I hope that the house goes to a good person and restore it as it original form as possible.

Is that an "air lock" of some sort happening at the stairwell landing?... or there's a landing below not shown on the plan.

I met the Hults at the 1988 FLWBC conference at Fallingwater. They asked me about getting help to address restoration concerns for their newly acquired house, so I introduced them to Wes Peters. I don't know what that may have led to, but the significant enlargement may have been done by TAA.

The house is no longer as Wright designed it. If all of the additions were by Wes or other TAA, I would be happy; in any event it is what it is . . .

Thanks, you're always ready..!! It's a shame those alterations. Well, who knows, maybe this goes to good hands and restore it.
