OGDEN DUNES, Ind. (AP) — A home in northwest Indiana designed by famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright has sold for more than $1 million.

The Armstrong House is one of only two surviving Wright-designed residences in northwest Indiana.

Oak Park, Illinois, resident Brian Bobek bought the house for $1.02 million in April.

The Times of Northwest Indiana reports the dramatic, light-filled home was built in 1939 in Ogden Dunes, a lakefront town about 40 miles east of Chicago along Lake Michigan.

The two-story brick house was built for the family of Andrew Armstrong, a Chicago advertising director.

It overlooks landscaped, wooded lots on a sloping sand dune and boasts four bedrooms, four bathrooms, two fireplaces, and many unique features.

According to Indiana Landmarks, seven Wright-designed homes remain in Indiana.
