Frank Lloyd Wright houses always seem like a lot to live up to and this one, the Fawcett House in Los Banos, California is no exception although this ranch house designed by an aging Frank Lloyd Wright is a bit less dramatic than some of his other creations. The long and low home was designed for a family, Buck and Harriet Fawcett and has two twin wings with a row of bedrooms radiating outward on the north side and the kitchen and play room on the south.
The family room is dominated by a massive altar of a fireplace. The theme of triangles reappears in the home, the floor is decorated with them and they appear in wood screens, fixtures and skylights. The home sits on 76 acres including a walnut orchard and has an angular pool, separate studio, wine cellar, tractor bay, Japanese garden and koi pond.
As the San Francisco Chronicle mentioned, there's a responsibility to owning a Frank Lloyd Wright home, it must be maintained according to the original design. But who would want to mess with it anyway? This home is listed at $2.7 million, there are many more pictures at the property website that are well worth a look.
