Because of its verticality, the Booth home is not as suited to aging in place as one-story Prairie-style homes are, so Sonia has put it on the market, giving the next owners a chance to live in a Wright work of art. Let’s hope they will appreciate, love and maintain the home as beautifully as she and Ted did for all those years.
