How Excited must one be to hear whispers of a Frank Lloyd Wright house for sale? I know I am so here we go…

Located at 6836 N 36th ST, Phoenix, AZ 85018 atop Palm Canyon tucked ways away from Lincoln Dr, in fact it’s one of the last properties up 36th street. Boosting some impressive and spectacular views of the valley of the sun. This livable art and impressive design has a price tag of $3,600,000 and features 3 BEDs, 3 BATHs, 2,849 sf, 2 car carport, all on a 1.32-acre lot. Fully renovated in 1995 and registered with the Wright Conservatory.

Wright designed the home for Norman and Aimee Lykes in 1959, riffing off the curves and forms of the nearby mountains to create a residence with a commanding view of Palm Canyon (all the bedrooms open up to the valley). It was the last sketch he would finish before passing away in April 1959; his apprentice John Rattenbury, with whom he consulted with before he passed away, finished the design and oversaw construction of the home on the original site, which was completed in 1967. The unique, wrapping interior, which include numerous built-ins, was updated for a previous owner by Rattenbury in 1994 (alterations included enlarging the master bedroom and converting a workshop into a home theater) – Curbed.com
