The last private residence designed by legendary architect Frank Lloyd Wright is going up on the block with Heritage Auctions on October 16.

Wright is widely considered the greatest architect of the 20th century. Some believe he was the greatest architect in U.S. history. He gained fame with his uniquely simple style, which he used to design over 1,100 buildings throughout his career—including the iconic Guggenheim Museum and Fallingwater.

The Norman Lykes Home, also known as the "Circular Sun House," is in Phoenix, Arizona. It is the last of 14 circular homes Wright designed and the very last residence of his storied career.

The home was designed by Wright in 1959 and like so many of his residential structures, it was meant to blend in and be fully integrated into the natural desert landscape surrounding it.

The project was overseen and completed by his apprentice John Rattenbury shortly before Wright passed away in 1967.
