Frank Lloyd Wright Fawcett House

Frank Lloyd Wright designed the Fawcett House in 1955 and completed it in 1961.  The angled architecture is stunning and we love the triangular pool. We want that triangular fire pit at our house too!

Frank Lloyd Wright called the modern style of this house as purely American-style architecture, with all its angles and glass and concrete.  The 120-degree angles used by Wright in the walls, windows and roofline help to blur the boundaries between indoor and outdoor space, not to mention making for an awe-inspiring experience. The repetition of the angles creates a sense of continuity and flow.

The-Fawcett-House-20The Fawcett house has been on and off the market.  It was listed for as much as $2.7M back in 2009, but then the price apparently was dropped by a million dollars in 2011.  As of the date of this post, it was removed from active listing in Feb. 2012 according to Zillow.
