From the agent: “Presenting one of Lloyd Wright’s strongest achievements, the Derby House. Built in 1926, this well-preserved residence show cases his genius of integrating nature and building; the garage gates, fireplace grates, French door grills, and closets are abstract renderings of the yucca plants growing on the surrounding hills and the pre-cast concrete ornamentation adorning this home is of Mayan inspiration. The Derby House is on the National Register of Historic Places.”
