5 homes on the market designed by famous architects

    Tucked away in seemingly average neighborhoods are some not-so-average homes.

    A home designed by Frank Lloyd Wright sits in a suburb of Cincinnati. The same artist who helped design China’s impressive Olympic Stadium designed a modern home in Ancram, N.Y., a small town in upstate New York.

    In neighborhoods across the U.S., these homes built by famous architects and designers stand among those with less impressive pedigrees. Many of these homes, designed for their original owners and kept in the family, rarely hit the market -- or they have been severely altered over the years, diminishing their value. But quite a few are either on the market right now, or were put up for sale within the past year.

    Take a glimpse at what some of these one-of-a-kind architectural gems offer.
