Actually this is the second broker - the first was from Oak Park and overpriced the property.

We're all entitled to our opinions Paul, and it is unrealistic to suggest that comments regarding homes on the market should be banned - I think many have learned a great deal (as I have) about individual works based on posts made on this forum. Call them silly, damaging whatever you like, its the nature of the discussion.

As for Millard, I sincerely hope that the right buyer surfaces that sees the presence of beauty and serenity exhibited by the house. We can each speculate as to why, but ultimately is has to be the right fit.

Having had the pleasure of touring Millard a few years back, it really is a wonderful home. And the current homeowners have been very good stewards.


Now, how can I possibly convince the current owner of the Ross House to take a bite on this one????? .... hahahaha.

The first realtor, who is based in Oak Park, has a great deal of experience marketing Wright homes, and has been a "go to" person for those homes for years. The original price, while it failed to produce a buyer, was not out of line with pricing of homes at the time. The home is lovely, and I hope it finds a loving purchaser quickly!!!

I've got it ! After all this time, I've finally figured out why new owners replace kitchens with such eagerness: No one can figure out how to adjust the slightly crooked doors on the existing cabinets . . .

Let's hope a buyer agrees with you after this recent asking price chop.

It continues to be a beautiful bargain. Nice to see the floor plans included in coverage; that's more than overdue for architecturally significant properties (at least). The photos are a mix of new and not so new, apparently. Take your pick of flavors.

Is a four-bedroom, 2 1/2 bath home now considered under-equipped ? One could see some objection to the oddly-proportioned (or maybe just difficult-to-photograph) master bedroom -- but what else isn't to like ?
