Frank Lloyd Wright’s final project, the Norman Lykes House, is back on the market for $3.25 million after failing to secure a buyer at a higher price. The residence, built into the side of a mountain in Phoenix, Arizona, offers stunning views of the city and includes some of Wright’s most celebrated design trademarks.
The famous architect designed the house just before his death in 1959. His apprentice, John Rattenbury, was appointed the architect for the home following Wright’s passing and was hired by the current owners to update the property in 1994. Rattenbury converted the five-bedroom home into a three bedroom, three bath space with the approval by Taliesin West.

The design of the house is based on circular geometry, with rounded windows and walls. Its curves follow the topography of the rocky backdrop, while the main living area offers expansive views of Phoenix. The home will be listed via The Agency shortly.
