PHOENIX - A Phoenix home designed by noted architect Frank Lloyd Wright had been threatened with demolition but is now about to go on the market.
Real estate broker Robert Joffe says the 1952 home designed by Wright will be listed Monday for sale at $2,379,000.
Joffe says he doesn't foresee the house being bought for resale or as a residence for the purchaser. Instead he expects a philanthropic buyer either would donate the property to a Wright foundation or use it for housing for students at a Wright-affiliated school.
Wright family members sold the two-acre property in 200. The current owners planned to demolish the home to redevelop the property.
The potential demolition set off a firestorm among architects, and the city is considering a possible historic status designation.
