One of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Phoenix homes sold last week for $2,800,000. It was built in 1951, just eight years before FLW died in 1959. Frank’s son David Wright was the original owner of this house. It had never been offered for sale before.
[Disclaimer: We are not calling this home ugly. Due to its historical significance, it is worth presenting to you today.]
Let’s take a tour.
The house has a spiral design with ramps.
The lifting of the house from the ground provides room for air to flow freely.
Here is an archival photo believed to be from the early 1950s.
Another old photo showing the foundation. The lot size is 2.18 acres.
The curved walls can be seen in the kitchen.
Concrete block and wood were the dominant building materials. This is the living room with a dramatic wood ceiling and concrete fireplace.
Approximately 2,500 square feet home with 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms.
The wood looks brand new instead of 58 years old.
Another fireplace. Beautiful wood ceiling.
There is a guest house as well.
