The house Frank Lloyd Wright designed for his son and daughter-in-law in Phoenix, Arizona, has been listed for sale—and the struggle over its fate continues.

Known as the David and Gladys Wright House, it’s being offered in “as-is” condition for $12.95 million. Bob Hassett of Russ Lyon Sotheby’s International Realty has the listing.
The cylindrical house was completed in 1952 and is considered a precursor to the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York City, which Wright designed a few years later. It’s also one of his last residential projects. (Wright died in 1959.)
The seller is Zach Rawling, a lawyer and Phoenix native, who saved the house from demolition when he purchased it for $2.38 million in 2012.
