In other grand Organic Architecture For Sale news: Taliesin Apprentice Earl Nisbet's stunning 1958 cliff-perched Sai Chow Doo Residence in Honolulu, Hawaii (aka "The Crest") is on the market for $4.8 million. It looks amazing in the photos, but apparently needs a little TLC (approximately $300-$500k worth). Looking at the vintage pics, I wonder what happened to the original furniture? Read and see more here.

Donna Weiss recently posted news and photos that the Walter Burley Griffin-designed Chancellor L. Jenks, Jr. Summer House (aka “Woodbank”) in Lauderdale Lakes, Walworth Co., Wisconsin is about to go up for auction and likely to be demolished to make way for something new on the land. I've not been able to find sale or auction information on the home because the address is very elusive (Lauderdale no longer exists as an incorporated place). I have alerted the Walter Burley Griffin Society of America, so hopefully more information can surface regarding if the house is in danger and what can be done. If anyone has more info, please feel free to share. For now, here's the link to the Facebook post. Stay tuned.

Talk has been circulating that, after the recent passing of one of the long-time owners of the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed William Winslow House (1893), the home is being prepped to go on the market for the first time since 1958 (and likely will be listed for around $2 million).
PrairieMod reader Anthony Thompson was recently visiting River Forest, IL and started a conversation with one of the home's residents. This chance encounter led to the rare opportunity to shoot some beautiful interior photos of the house that he's been kind enough to share with us. See them all here--hopefully we'll all get the chance to see this important work of architecture on the 2014 "All Wright" Housewalk!

Curbed Chicago reports that billionaire and Frank Lloyd Wright enthusiast Jennifer Pritzker is setting sights on adding the Blossom and MacArthur Houses in the Kenwood neighborhood of Chicago to her collection (she also owns the Bach House in Rogers Park). The idea would be to fully restore and then turn the side-by-side Wright houses into bed and breakfasts for overnight stays. More here.

Scott T. had some follow-up info to yesterday's post on the Edgar Tafel-designed house that's for sale in Middleton,WI:
"This house shows up on PrairieMod every once in a while. It's been for sale for some time, and the price has dropped. The house has been added onto in the past decade or so. I can't remember how far the entrance overhang used to extend, but the breezeway, garage, and related steps and stonework are relatively new. They were executed by Jim Klassy of Klassy Inc. I'm not sure how much work Klassy did on the interior of the original part of the house, if any. In any case, the addition is amazing—very hard to distinguish the new stonework from the original."
