Gallery: Frank Lloyd Wright’s Iconic “La Miniatura” Millard House Hits ...

In the early 1920s Frank Lloyd Wright made his way westward to California, looking to explore new architectural ideas, building materials and forms. "Buildings, too, are children of earth and sun," said the architect, and where better to build them than the Golden State? Wright went on to design 26 buildings in California, but his greatest work may have been the Millard House—the home Wright lovingly referred to as "La Miniatura". Built in 1923 for rare books dealers George and Alice Millard, the concrete textile-block house was the famed architect's first foray into modular building. If you've always wanted to own an iconic work of architecture, this beautiful, now-completely-restored home could be yours. WSJ Magazine tells us that La Miniatura has just been listed by Crosby Doe Associates for $4.5 million.

    I love everything about this house. Well, except the price tag, because I can’t afford it :)
