Frank Lloyd Wright’s final home is headed to Heritage Auctions without reserve later this month. The Norman Lykes House, also known as the Circular Sun House, is Located in Phoenix, Arizona, and the last private residence designed by the famed architect before his death in 1959. Sitting on over 1.3 acres at the edge of the Phoenix Mountains Preserve, this stunning three-bedroom, three-bathroom home spans 3,095 square feet.
The design seamlessly blends into the desert and is made from concrete blocks that mimic the surrounding boulders, making the entire structure look like a natural part of the landscape. Despite most of its windows blocking direct sunlight, the interiors are bathed in natural light, while offering breathtaking views of Palm Canyon.
If the exterior isn’t impressive enough, step into the master suite, and you’ll be greeted with a balcony with views of the canyon and valley. Need to get some work done? A large office on the second-story has 360° views of the natural desert landscape. Not just a residence with views, it’s filled with luxurious features as well, like Philippine mahogany handcrafted throughout, mid-century modern furnishings, and even a garden terrace with a mother-of-pearl lined pool.
