Frank Lloyd Wright was one of the world's most renowned architects, and he certainly left his mark on Chicago. His Prairie-style homes are scattered across the city and surrounding area, and you could own one—if you have a couple million to spare. These seven Wright creations are all for sale, and feel like they're straight out of an episode of Mad Men.

562 Keystone Avenue, River Forest — $1.325 million

 Wright's famous J. Kibben Ingalls House in River Forest dates back to 1909, and was updated in the 1970s when architect John Tilton bough the place. 


3215 S Calumet Avenue, Chicago — $575,000

The Roloson Houses were the only row houses that Wright designed, and one is up for sale. At $575,000, it's the cheapest Wright home for currently for sale in the Chicago area.


1689 Lake Avenue, Highland Park — $799,000

Highland Park's Millard House has 68 original art glass windows, which date back to 1906. It's situated a stone's throw away from Lake Michigan on an isolated wooded lot, ensuring that no one other than its owners can cherish its beauty.


515 Auvergne Place, River Forest — $1.55 million

The Winslow House also has its original art glass windows, but has a few more bells and whistles than Highland Park's Millard House. Its stunningly maintained interior make it surprising that it's failed to fetch a buyer after more than a year on the market. 


301 S Kenilworth Avenue, Elmhurst — $995,000

Wright's F.B. Henderson House has been on and off the market for years, and it was just re-listed this week for less than $1 million. The kicker with this western suburban spot: A wine cellar.


5132 S Woodlawn Avenue, Chicago — $2.425 million

The Heller House in Hyde Park is a national landmark, which might help explain why it's the most expensive home on this list. The four fireplaces and elevator can't hurt either. 


281 Bloomingbank Road, Riverside — $2.1 million

If you're buying a Wright home, it might as well come with a lily pond. The Avery Coonley House has been beautifully restored since its completion in 1912. The heavy price has left this home unsold for a while—the $28,000 in annual property taxes can't be too appealing to even the most passionate FLW aficionado.
