The price for the Phoenix spiral house Frank Lloyd Wright designed for his son David has dropped by almost $3 million to $9.999 million.
The 2,553-square-foot house built in 1952 was listed last September for $12.95 million.
Last summer, a plan for the house to be donated to the School of Architecture at Taliesin fell through.
The concrete block house with three bedrooms and four bathrooms sits on 5.9 acres in the affluent Arcadia neighborhood, south of Camelback Mountain.
Zach Rawling paid $2.3 million for the house in 2012 when a previous owner tried to demolish it. He had tried to open the house as a museum before working with Taliesin’s architectural school.
Neighbors have been concerned about the property becoming a commercial attraction that may bring more traffic. There were also some concerns about the school proposal.
Bob Hassett of Russ Lyon Sotheby's International Realty has the listing for the Wright house.
A description of the house says it has been partially updated but needs more renovations, including structural and electrical repairs.
The buyer will get reproductions of Wright’s signature “March Balloons” carpet designed for the house.
