Frank Lloyd Wright’s Armstrong House in Indiana Now Available for $1.2M

At some point in his career, Frank Lloyd Wright strayed over the Illinois border and started designing houses in the neighboring state of Indiana.

One of those rare seven—a Usonian-style home in Ogden Dunes, IN—is now on the hunt for a buyer. Known as the Andrew F.H. Armstrong House, the residence is on the market for $1,195,000.

Measuring 3,669 square feet, the four-bedroom, four-bathroom property is being sold as is—which is usually a bad sign. However, the listing notes that the home “has been meticulously maintained” and that it has multiple elements of Wright’s signature aesthetic, for which it would be difficult to find a comparable.


It was built in 1939 into a slight slope on the wooded property and, thanks to the efforts of the most recent owner, appears to be in excellent condition.

There are two fireplaces, an expansive living room, a carport, numerous built-ins, red-brick exterior walls,

Frank Lloyd Wright’s ‘Circular Sun’ Home in Phoenix Back on the Market for Another Spin

After purchasing a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed home in Phoenix for $1,677,500 last year—and transforming it into a design lover’s Airbnb—the owner is ready to part with the place

Listed for $7,950,000 with Deanna Peters of HomeSmart, the eye-catching, curvy property—there’s a reason it’s dubbed Circular Sun—features three bedrooms and three bathrooms.

Built in 1967 for Norman Lykes, it has the distinction of being Wright’s final design before his death, in 1959. It is on a 1.32-acre lot.

Peters notes that the home’s sale can include custom furniture, if a buyer so chooses.


Designed to blend into the surrounding desert mountains, the property sits near Arizona Biltmore—a luxe resort Wright consulted on—as well as the Phoenix Mountains Preserve.

Wright only designed 14 circular homes, including this one. The interiors measure in at around 3,100 square feet, with concentric circles that overlap, driving the design.

Frank Luntz urges pollsters to seek new profession after Trump outperforms polls: ‘Sell real estate’

Republican pollster Frank Luntz told Fox News’ “Media Buzz” on Sunday that the credibility of his profession has been irreversibly damaged after President Trump outperformed polls for a second straight presidential election.

The Veteran pollster told host Howard Krutz that that public opinion surveys significantly underestimated Trump’s support again, and urged those responsible for botching back-to-back presidential elections to seek a new profession. 

LUNTZ: POLLSTERS HAVE NEVER BEEN SO WRONG 

“I think what is happening is accountability in action,” Luntz argued, “and if you got it wrong this time, you got it wrong twice in a row, you shouldn’t be working in the business. There are other things you can do. You can sell real estate. You can sell stocks,” he said. ” Stop selling polls.”

Trump told reporters Thursday night that pollsters deliberately inflated President-elect Joe Biden’s lead in the 2020 race in order to suppress his support and

Frank Lloyd Wright-Designed Home With Only 2 Owners for Sale in Illinois

Back in 1950, John Carr, an architect, commissioned a home from the legendary architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Carr initially planned for his home to be built in Park Ridge, IL.

However, plans shifted just a bit, and the home was built a few years later in nearby Glenview, IL—because the Carrs were charmed by the rural status of the town at the time.

It remains the only Wright-designed home in the Chicago suburb of around 50,000 residents, and it was featured in House Beautiful magazine in the 1980s.

For a Wright-loving house hunter, it’s now on the market, listed with Erica Goldman of Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty for $1,695,000.


Goldman tells us, “We look at this home as much as a piece of art as a home to purchase. The family’s hope is that it goes to someone who’s preservation-minded.”

The Carrs sold the four-bedroom, 3.5-bath Usonian-style home
