Want to buy a Frank Lloyd Wright in California?

10/16/2008


Frank Lloyd Wright
Los Banos, California
$2,700,000

The Harriet and Randall Fawcett Residence, 1961

From the air, midway between Monterey and Yosemite, with its pool, pond and palms, Fawcett Residence is an oasis amid the checkerboard farms of the great San Joaquin Valley. With 80 rich fertile acres, the property fits naturally within a peaceful rural community context. Its self-sufficiency affords a virtual case-study of Wright’s Usonian vision of home as a “refuge for the expanding spirit of man the individual.”

And they’re saying if it’s too much for you….

Built for family living, the residence today would be ideal as a private retreat or arts center.

Plus, this being California, you can grow produce on the land,

as well as a walnut orchard.
