Iconic 'Circular Sun House' by Frank Lloyd Wright up for sale

If you're in the market for an $8.95 million home, Wright's incredible "final" design is up for sale in the hills of Phoenix.

PHOENIX — There are few architects whose designs are as immediately recognizable as the works of Frank Lloyd Wright. Now, Wright's final architectural design, the "Circular Sun House" of Phoenix, is up for sale.

If you're in the market for an $8.95 million home, this 3-bedroom work of art could be the one for you.

Also known as the Norman Lykes House, the home's Zillow listing details the uniquely beautiful architecture. From the sprawling entertainment spaces to the seamless floor plan that blends the home into the rocky mountains around it, the house is unlike any other in the Valley.

The 3,095-square-foot house overlooks Palm Canyon and most of the city below. It contains three bedrooms, a library, a den, and a home office space as well as an outdoor pool.

It was Frank Lloyd Wright's final residential design before his death, and one of 14 circular homes designed by the architect.

Bloomberg reporter Steven Dennis featured the home on a Twitter segment that he calls Friday Night Zillow. It's a steep price tag, but the home's listing can be found here on Zillow.com.

And by looking at the tweets, the views are pretty incredible.
