Frank Lloyd Wright-designed home sells
A Phoenix home that famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright designed for his son has been sold for $2.8 million. Realtor Cionne McCarthy says escrow on the spiral-shaped home of about 2,250 square feet closed last week.
She says the undisclosed buyer plans to restore the home, built in 1951, to its original condition and live in it.
The 2-acre property includes a guesthouse, pool and a spiral ramp leading to the home's second-level living space with a rooftop deck offering views of nearby Camelback Mountain.
It was one of two homes Wright designed for his children and it was occupied by David Wright and his wife, Gladys.
They were the only owners. David Wright died in 1997 and his wife died last year.
It is one of eight Phoenix-area houses and about 500 worldwide that sprang directly from the designs of Frank Lloyd Wright, who died in 1959.
