Frank Lloyd Wright homes for sale
Finding a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed home for sale in Southern California is unusual, but a number of the architect's houses are available across the nation.
Now the Wright-designed Fawcett Residence in Los Banos, in the middle of California, is being marketed for $2.7 million. There are five bedrooms, a Japanese garden and 80 acres that support produce should the rural life appeal.
Both homes and more than a dozen other properties for sale that were designed by the architect are listed at the website of the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy.
The bulk of the listings are in Illinois, with Minnesota and Michigan also having respectable showings. The next priciest after the 1923 Pasadena gem is the 1909 Alpine Meadows Ranch, which includes 255 acres for the money, set in Darby, Mont. The least expensive on the site is the 1957 Carl E. Schultz House in St. Joseph, Mich., for $655,000. It has Wright's hand-signed tile at the front door, 3,850 square feet of living space and 170 feet of frontage on the St. Joseph River. That's a lot of bang for the buck.
