The brick banding and central door location with a flat awning cause me to think of this house as Moderne rather than Prairie, or a mash up of the two.

Yes, it looks like mid-1930s.

It's too bad no one mentions the date of construction---much less an architect's name, other than the spurious mention of Wright.

If the designer had chosen a slightly shallower roof pitch, the ridge of the ell would have fallen below his upper string course. Note how nicely the stair window at the half-level is integrated into the composition.
