Sixty years after his death, the last home design Frank Lloyd Wright ever worked on is going up for auction.
The Circular Sun House, also known as the Norman Lykes House, in Phoenix is a 3,095-square-foot, three-bedroom, three-bathroom house sitting on 1.3 acres on the edge of the Phoenix Mountains Preserve. It is set to go to auction on Oct. 16, according to TopTenRealEstateDeals.com.
According to the publication, Wright had been working with apprentice John Rattenbury on sketches for the home and had reportedly picked the site and designed furniture and built-ins before he became ill and died in 1959. Wright was born in Wisconsin and got his start as an architect in Chicago.
