Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: As a big fan of Frank Lloyd Wright, I was surprised when we first time saw the house. Former owners David and Jillayne Arena and their family spent 36 years and did a great job restoring the house.

Why the Owner Chose Milwaukee:
One of only two restored Frank Lloyd Wright-designed American System-Built homes in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. One of only a few Frank Lloyd Wright-designed houses where you can spend the night. Frank Lloyd Wright signed the actual building permit in 1916. A true Prairie Style original. Light-filled rooms create a warm, organic living space. Maple floors throughout, 80 leaded glass windows, built in bookcases and armories, tray ceilings, natural fireplaces. Spacious, vintage Danish-designed Poggenpohl kitchen. Amazing stained glass skylight floods staircase with light. Generous master suite with en-suite bath, natural fireplace, and many built-ins. Private, mature landscaped yard with deck.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Stay in Frank Lloyd Wright designed American System-Built Home, enjoy 80 gorgeous leaded glass windows, amazing stained glass skylight floods staircase with light, and view the other five Wright-designed homes on the same block-the longest continuous stretch of Wright homes. From the house: 1.1 miles, 4 minutes drive to Milwaukee Domes 8.7 miles, 19 minutes drive to Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church (Frank Lloyd Wright designed), Milwaukee, Wisconsin. 40+ Frank Lloyd Wright designed buildings in Wisconsin. 80 miles, 1hr 30’ drive to Chicago, IL. 110+ Frank Lloyd Wright designed buildings in Illinois.
