PHOENIX — The last home designed by famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright before his death will hit the Phoenix real estate market soon.

The foundation named after Wright said the 2,849-square-foot home near 32nd Street and Lincoln Drive would be put up for sale early this year.

Jack Luciano, one of the real estate agents selling the home, said it would be priced at $3.25 million.

The home was designed by Wright in 1959. One of his apprentices, John Rattenbury, was named as the architect for the project and the home was built in 1967.

The circular home was designed specifically for the rocky, uneven site on the slopes of Piestewa Peak.

When it was built, it had five bedrooms and three bathrooms. However, some changes were made and two very small bedrooms were combined to make a large master.

The home also contains numerous Wright signatures, such as narrow hallways that open into a grander area, low seating that does not impede views and Art Deco design features.

If you’re worried about storage, this house apparently has you covered: Numerous original built-ins were left in place that line some of the rooms and a hallway.

There is also a place to cool off. A circular pool that was part of the original design was added to the home in the mid-1990s.

The home will also be sold furnished, meaning some of the Wright-designed chairs and other pieces will remain in place.
