Have you ever dreamed about partying it up in a Frank Lloyd Wright house? Well now's your chance.

The Emil Bach House in Rogers Park is open to the public for tours, events and even overnight stays. The house, at 7415 N. Sheridan Rd., was built in 1915 for Emil Bach, the co-owner of the Bach Brick Company. When it was built, it was Bach's country house with great views of the lake, according to Time Out Chicago. Now you can't see the lake, and it definitely isn't in the country, but it was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 1979.

Staying in one of the historic home's two guest rooms will cost set you back a bit. It costs $995 per night and there's a two-night minimum. Though for Frank Lloyd Wright fanatics, the experience would be priceless. Based on its upcoming availability, it looks like the unique experience is in demand.

The rooms have been outfitted with modern conveniences: free wifi, a flat screen TV, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, pillow top mattresses and lots of other luxuries.

Planning a wedding, fancy party or a retreat? You can host any of those special occasions at the Bach House and its backyard Japanese tea house. You can contact the house for prices and availability.

If you're not feeling the big price tag, the house is open for 45-minute guided tours on Wednesdays and Thursdays through Oct. 15.
