Frank Lloyd Wright's Millard House For Sale

I wish I had the money. Originally $ 17.000, now $ 4.495.000.

"Part of a venture into modular housing by the venerable architect, 1923's Millard House (which Wright himself referred to as "La Miniatura"—a label to describe his fondness for the house) was created from concrete blocks, each featuring a carved cross and square pattern, in a style he believed would lower the cost of home construction while retaining delicacy and beauty. The 4,230-square-foot, four-bedroom, four-bath home—currently on sale through Crosby Doe Associates for $4,495,000—offers a rare opportunity to lay claim to a unique piece of Wright history. The house, located in Pasadena, California, was originally built for book dealer Alice Millard for $17,000. Wright once said, "I would rather have built this little house than St. Peter's in Rome.""
