Frank Lloyd Wright Home for Sale

With its low-pitched roof, flashes of oxidized copper and repeating triangular motifs, the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Fawcett Home is a complete example of the architect’s style and aesthetic language. At the center of the home is a 6-foot by 12-foot fireplace that dominates a living room filled with built-in mahogany cabinetry. The 3,700 square-foot Los Banos home was completed in 1961, two years after Wright’s death. The home was built for Buck Fawcett and his wife, Harriet, who died in the 1990s. The Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy says private owners can more easily commit to the cost and upkeep of maintaining such a historic home, so when Buck died in 2006, the couple’s two daughters started working to find a private buyer for the $2.7 million California home.
