Frank Lloyd Wright and a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed home at 1031 Meadow Road in Glencoe

A Frank Lloyd Wright-designed home in suburban Glencoe that sold at a big discount three months ago is already back on the market.

The 2,200-square-foot Prairie School home at 1031 Meadow Road was named after its first owner, physician William F. Kier, according to Curbed. It was built in 1914 as an evolution of on the architect’s 1907 “Fireproof House for $5,000” concept. The listing first hit the market in September at $799,000 before the current owner snapped it up for $752,000. It’s back on the market asking $837,500.

Recent improvements on the property led to the price increase, Cathy Deutsch of Coldwell Banker told Curbed. The owner did work on the home’s chimneys, boiler and furnace, and added a limestone bar between the kitchen and dining room and a raised ceiling above the stairs to the second level.

The home features many Prairie School staples as a wood and stucco exterior, broad overhanging eaves and attached porte cochere. Because of a number of interior changes, though, the house holds only an “honorary” landmark designation with the village. [Curbed] — John O’Brien
