This historic home in Phoenix is listed for $3.25 million.
One of only 14 circular homes designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, the Norman Lykes House in Phoenix was the last one designed by the legendary architect before his death in 1959. The 3,095-square-foot home overlooking Palm Canyon is listed at $3.25 million by Roxanne Johnson, Jack Luciano, and Raul Siqueiros of the real estate brokerage firm The Agency.
“The new owner of this very special property will be not only purchasing a fantastic home, they will become the new stewards of this important moment in architectural history,” said Johnson, a partner of The Agency in Arizona.
Wright originally designed the home for Norman and Aimee Lykes. His apprentice, John Rattenbury, ultimately constructed the concentric, mountain-side dwelling for the Lykes in 1967. Since then, this mid-century masterpiece has passed ownership only once. The current owners updated the 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom home in 1994, but only with approval from the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation and the expert help of John Rattenbury himself.
