Frank Lloyd Wright, Midcentury Modern

Frank Lloyd Wright’s Circular Sun House Is Going Up For Auction

According to TopTenRealEstate, the stunning Frank Lloyd Wright’s Circular Sun House– the last home he worked on before he died, is ready for market auction. Located on the cusp of the Phoenix Mountains Preserve, this spherically spectacular home is a 3,095-square-foot beauty, complete with three baths and three bedrooms.

But unlike other mountain residencies of the area, this structure is the brain-child of the acclaimed architect Frank Lloyd Wright.

Wright designed more than 1,000 structures over the course of his career. The Guggenheim Museum in Los Angeles, Fallingwater in Pennsylvania, and the Johnson Wax Headquarters in Wisconsin are just a few of the buildings that can be attributed to this enigmatic architect.

And now, 60 years after his passing, Wright’s experimental Circular Sun House is up for auction. Working in collaboration with his apprentice John Rattenbury, Wright’s sketches were heavily influenced by functional Usonian, textile block, and Prairie styles. Infatuated with spherical elements and curvature, the late architect fashioned his home in an extraneously unique way.

Components of this Arizona household include a large living room fireplace, lower-level media room, privacy-walled crescent pool, Philippine mahogany office, and half-moon windows. Not to mention, the owners of the house will also be receiving an array of Wright’s exclusive mid-century furniture to complement this specific structure.

This 1967 marvel will be auctioned off on October 16th by Heritage Auctions. Who will be the opportune owner of Frank Lloyd Wright’s final residential design? Could it be you?
