A Frank Lloyd Wright house in Wilmette, an 1897 Italianate home in Wilmington and a renovated midcentury house in Scottsdale.

This house is one of Wright’s American System-Built Homes, his effort at affordable housing using precut pieces assembled inexpensively on site. It is a few blocks from a section of Leahy Park with a playground and a municipal golf course. The center of Wilmette and Gillson Beach, on Lake Michigan, are about a mile away.

Chicago is about half an hour away, by car or public transit.

Size: 1,458 square feet

Price per square foot: $617

Indoors: Paved steps lead from the street up to a covered porch. The front door opens into a sunny foyer wrapped in windows with their original unpainted woodwork, a feature that can be seen throughout the house.

To the right is a living room with a wood-burning fireplace flanked by windows. The dining room is also off the foyer. Both rooms have direct access to an updated kitchen with a center island, stainless steel appliances, more original woodwork and a skylight.

An L-shaped hallway extending from the kitchen links all three bedrooms. The primary suite has a bedroom big enough to hold a king-size bed and a bathroom with a walk-in shower and floating vanity. The other two bedrooms have the use of a full bathroom with a combined tub and shower.

Another bathroom with a stall shower and a sink is in the finished basement, along with a recreation room, a space used by the sellers as a home office and a laundry room with a side-by-side washer and dryer. An extra stainless steel refrigerator is also in the basement.
