A few years ago, controversy swirled around the David and Gladys Wright House, a Phoenix home designed by Frank Lloyd Wright for his son and daughter-in-law.
Neighbors in the upscale Arcadia neighborhood, where the home sits on nearly six acres of land once filled with fragrant orange blossoms, protested owner Zachary Rawling’s proposal to create a cultural center on the property, prompting Rawling to nix the plans and put the property on the market.
On August 14, new owners closed a $7.25 million deal for the 2,200-square-foot house. They include Bing Hu, Wenchin Shi, and Jim Benson. Bing Hu is the founding principal of a Scottsdale-based global architecture firm called H & S International, which specializes in luxury hospitality and high-end residences.
