The Flori Blondeel House #3 on the market

A landmark Prairie School house designed by John Van Bergen
436 N. Elmwood Ave - Oak Park, Illinois

Not just a house, but a work of art, this magnificent example of John Van Bergen's architecture is well preserved and retains most of its historic fabric - very unusual these days. The design and floor plan is influenced by mentors, Walter Burley Griffin and Frank Lloyd Wright, but is uniquely his own. The house has been conserved and restored by Marty Hackl, an expert on Prairie School architecture and the foremost expert on John Van Bergen. He is also the author of the only book on the architect, "The Work of John Van Bergen, Architect"
