A rare Frank Lloyd Wright Texas home sells for $2.7 million


The sole example of Frank Lloyd Wright-famed Usonian style in the greater Houston area has been sold for $2.7 million to a pair of unnamed buyers.

The Houston Chronicle is reporting that Wright’s coveted William Thaxton House was able to lure a new owner at a reduced price. The home had been on the market for most of this year after being initially listed for $3.15 million. 

The now 8,000-square-foot home is one of only three houses in the state that Wright designed and has undergone several renovations and was given a heavily-publicized addition in 1991. Originally constructed in 1955 for a local insurance executive, Wright’s concrete block design features two fireplaces, an inground pool, and accessible courtyard with a plethora of steel-framed windows that give the home his signature inside-out harmony with the natural world.
