Charles R Perry House -Ravine Bluffs Development, Frank Lloyd Wright, 1915
272 Sylvan Road, Glencoe IL
The Perry House is one of a series of seven houses designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and commissioned by Sherman Booth in what is known as the Ravine Bluffs Development of Glencoe, Illinois. Four of the houses are variations of "A Fireproof House for $5,000", a prototype house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright for the Ladies Home Journal. The Perry House is virtually identical in plan to the Hollis Root House, but is marked with gabled roofs instead of the flat roofs of the Root House.
