Did You Know a Famous Architect Designed A Home in Galesburg, and It’s For Sale
If you know the name of any architect, it's likely Frank Lloyd Wright. And plenty of his homes are on display around Michigan. There is a famous group of Wright-designed homes in Grand Rapids and one in Galesburg is for sale right now.
Commissioned by Samuel and Dorothy Eppstein and built in 1953, this three-bedroom, two-bathroom Usonian home in Galesburg, MI, was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. It’s registered on both the National Register of Historic Places and the Frank Lloyd Wright Conservancy.
Now on the market for $455,000, it’s the cheapest Wright home currently for sale in the country, according to listing agent Fred Taber of Jaqua Realtors. It’s also the only Wright home for sale in Michigan—and it features many of Wright’s signature elements: a concrete-block floor-to-ceiling fireplace, built-ins, low and slanted ceilings, and radiant-floor heating. There’s also an in-ground cement pool in the yard. Ten-foot windows in the living room coax nature inside.
