This prairie home style, made famous by Frank Lloyd Wright, was designed to harmonize with the rolling hills of the Midwest farmlands. It is characterized by long roof lines, cantilevers and lots of windows. This example combines brick, wood and limestone.
This elegant brick two story draws the eyes of passers by. Its wraparound porch highlights the heigh of the home, while the archway that lies front and center of the porch brings out the beauty of the rich wood door, and the perfectly symmetrical lawn brings an orderly class to the place. All these features come together to make an elegant aesthetic masterpiece.
Surrounded by large, majestic trees, this grandiose house is reminiscent of the elegant antebellum homes of the Old South. The elevated ceilings of the wraparound porch give the home an open vibe, while the two dormers on the roof make the home appear as if it is looking out over the property. This elegance and charm are two things that make this home stand out among its neighbors.

The walkway leading up to this Illinois residence is lined with perfectly manicured grass and vibrant pink flowers that usher guests into this elegant home. Made of asymmetrical gray stone pavers, the natural color of this walkway perfectly complements the vibrant colors of the landscaping.
The 16-room, nearly 5,000-square foot house sits on a lovely block in Evanston, Illinois. Its original owners, who oversaw the residence's construction in 1891, would be proud of how beautiful it still looks today.
