One of Frank Lloyd Wright’s more acclaimed houses, La Miniatura (aka the Millard House) is on the market again, this time for a hair under $5 mil. (Last time, pre-recession, it was up for $7.73 million.) We’ve been neighbors to this beautiful Prospect Park sculpture in concrete textile block for many years, so we know that ol’ Frank wasn’t so great about designing to avoid roof leaks, but the last round of extensive renovations seem to have finally ended the need for giant blue tarps to protect from the elements.
The house has four bedrooms, two kitchens, an amazing studio and nearly an acre of grounds running from Prospect Crescent to Rosemont below. It is, of course, on the National Register of Historic Places, and architecture buffs are always walking around it with cameras.
