Frank Lloyd Wright's Final Design: The Circular Sun House in Arizona

Designed in 1959 and built in 1967, the Norman Lykes House, also known as the 'Circular Sun House', was Frank Lloyd Wright's final residential design before his passing. It's one of only 14 circular homes by the master architect and is truly one of a kind.

The iconic property is located on a desert mountain overlooking the Biltmore area of Phoenix, Arizona, and is currently on the market for $7,950,000.
