It is currently listed for $2.65 million with The Agency. It will be auctioned by Dallas-based Heritage Auctions, which announced the sale on Sept. 5.
It is currently listed for $2.65 million with The Agency, which put it on the market about two years ago, listing agent Jack Luciano said. It will be auctioned by Dallas-based Heritage Auctions, which announced the sale on Sept. 5.
“It’s one of only 14 circular homes Wright designed,” Mr. Luciano said. “And it’s only had two owners, which is unheard of with Frank Lloyd Wright homes. I hope it goes to a buyer who appreciates and understands Wright’s designs.” 
According to property records, Linda Melton, who was only the second owner, bought the property in 1994 for $500,000. Melton, who was the owner, records keeper and billing agent of several telephone companies in the United States, died in 2011.
