Video: Frank Lloyd Wright's Heurtley House

               
 
      
   
Found on Google Video this week: a short video tour of what many folks consider the best-restored (and maintained) Frank Lloyd Wright residential property, the 1902 Heurtley House in Chicago's Oak Park suburb. The restoration included not only returning to Wright's original plan throughout the structure, but recreating the original furnishings as well.

The current owners bought it for $350,000 a few years ago, and have recently spent $1.2 million on the complete restoration of the building. It is not usually open to the public, but is sometimes part of historical home tours in the area. Pictures from a 2003 tour are available online.
