A prairie-style cottage in Wilmette has gotten a stay of execution.
The owner, a homebuilder who had planned to demolish the 1928 home, has listed it for sale for $700,000, according to Crain’s Chicago Business. He did so after hearing from preservationists who argued for it to remain intact because it was designed by John Van Bergen, who studied with Frank Lloyd Wright.
The homebuilder says he’ll give it six weeks or so to sell, Crain’s reports.
The 1,500-square-foot home on Isabella Street has three bedrooms and 2.5 baths. It’s listed for $700,000.
