Located in the Phoenix Mountains Preserve, US, is the last home of late architect and interior designer Frank Lloyd Wright — and it is going up for auction with no minimum price.

US architect and designer Wright, who died in 1959, designed hundreds of homes and public pavilions during a storied career that saw him adopt a philosophy called organic architecture.

He has been described as one of the greatest architects in US history.

On October 16, the last residential home Wright designed, Norman Lykes House, will be auctioned by Heritage Auctions.

His final residential project weaves in and around the natural mountainous landscape in Phoenix, Arizona and was built with concrete blocks in a colour that blends with the boulders surrounding it.

It comes with mid-century modern furnishings, featuring three bedrooms and three baths across more than 280m².

Nate Schar, director of Luxury Real Estate at Heritage Auctions, said the property remained in “impeccable condition”.

“Bidders will have the opportunity to not only buy this incredibly liveable mid-century modern home, but also to own the final masterpiece from the most iconic American architect.”

The home also comes with a garden terrace pool lined with mother of pearl and the architectural style helps to capture the dancing partners of light and shadow.
