Just Listed: $700,000. This three-story house along the Mississippi River in Minneapolis was designed by Philip Weber, who studied at the Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin School in Spring Green, Wisconsin. It was built in 1991 and incorporated parts of a house that had been built on the site in the early 1900s.

The house - at 1307 E. River Parkway - has nearly 4,000 square feet including a third-floor master suite with its own kitchenette, and three decks with views of the river and the downtown Minneapolis. The details are pure Prairie School, including exotic wood banding and accents and the rectlinear lines that are the typical of the style.
