The Acres [Galesburg]:
On the heels of the recent listing of Frank Lloyd Wright's Eppstein House comes the listing of its neighbor to the north, the Fonken House, designed by Taliesin Fellow Will Willsey in the Usonian style fitting its setting among the four FLW Usonians in The Acres. The Fonken house had recently fallen into disrepair but has been partially rehabilitated by the seller. As you can see from the pictures, the original built-up stone roof has been replaced with a new rubber roof. The asking price would seem to allow room for completing more work that needs to be done. And, if nothing else, the rubber roof should buy some time for the next owners.
