In 1952, Frank Lloyd Wright built this concrete block home on a 5.9-acre lot in the Arcadia neighborhood of Phoenix, Arizona, for his son, David, and daughter-in-law, Gladys. Set in an orange grove, the circular home features sweeping views of the Camelback Mountains, a central courtyard, and a cantilevered spiral walk-up design, which is an early example of the iconic architect’s later style.

Also included in the listing is a recently restored 360-square-foot guest house.
