A Frank Lloyd Wright–Designed Home in Phoenix Sells

After two years on the market, Frank Lloyd Wrights stunning Arizona desert spiral house has finally sold for $7.25 million. The 2,200-square-foot home is situated in the Phoenix area of Arcadia and was initially built for Wrights child David and his daughter-in-law Gladys back in the 1950s. According to local paper the Arizona Republic, the buyers plan to maintain the home and bring back, which likely comes as a relief to preservationists offered that previous buyers have actually wished to take down the distinct structure to develop something in its place. Part of the renovation strategies consist of adding a copper roofing system, which was something Wright had initially intended for the property.Set upon a six-acre lot, the primary house uses almost no straight lines. In place of stairs, a curved ramp leads up to the main entryway. The walls, primarily made of wood and stone, are all a little rounded, and windows are similarly shaped to fit. A main courtyard as well as an expansive quantity of grassy lawn surrounds the main structure.Discover ADVERTISEMENT PROThe supreme resource for design market specialists, brought to you by the editors of Architectural DigestArrowThe David and Gladys Wright House boasts three bedrooms and four restrooms, and spaces of note include a circular living-room with a rounded stone fireplace and a dining location with an entire wall of rounded windows overlooking the desert and a balcony landscape beyond that. The kitchen features curved countertops and a large-scale circular window that floods the space with natural light. A 360-square-foot guesthouse sits on the far edge of the property and was recently restored, according to the Los Angeles Times.Other Wright-designed structures that were offered in current years include his popular Ennis House in Los Feliz, California, which offered for $18 million last year, and his Mayan Revival– style Storer House in Hollywood Hills, which offered for $6.8 million in 2015. One of his earliest productions, a Japanese-style house located on the South Side of Chicago, was noted for just $175,000 earlier this year.
