Emil Bach House is up for auction.

The Sun-Times reports today that the Emil Bach House at 7415 N. Sheridan Road, Chicago will be auctioned on March 8th by Inland Real Estate Auctions. The auction will be open-outcry with a minimium bid of $750,000.00. The seller will have a reserve and will be able to reject the top offer if it does not meet expectations.

One of the last of Wright's designs for a small urban house, this residence combines elements of the Prairie style with a compact plan well suited for its mid-block site. The house was designed for Emil Bach, who was co-owner of the Bach Brick Company and a great admirer of Wright's work. The house was designated a Chicago landmark in 1977.
