Historic Frank Lloyd Wright home for sale in AZ

A new piece of property is opening up in Phoenix for potential homeowners. History buffs searching for their ideal real estate in Phoenix can call the Gladys and David Wright House in August. The home, which was built by Frank Lloyd Wright for his son David, is in a 60-day standstill before redevelopment that ends on August 21.

Property development company Meridian stated that if a buyer is not found by the deadline, the home will be redeveloped into two separate pieces of property. The company’s options include either finding a buyer for the entire property or splitting it into two estates. Meridian paid $1.8 million for the home, which was bought by another company for $2.8 million from the Wright family.

The Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy launched an international search to find the perfect buyer for the 2,500-square-foot house, which also includes a 350-square-foot guest house. The community has shown an outpouring of concern over the preservation of the home.

However, prospective homebuyers looking into the Arcadia area of Phoenix don't have to limit their real estate searches to historic homes. While the area features a number of architectural gems from as early as the 1920s, Arcadia communities also have a number of modern homes with unique design nodes for sale as well.
