Mid-Century modern in California

Built in 1923 in Pasadena, California, the house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976. Recognized by Wright as his earliest “Usonian” house, La Miniatura is also the first residence to utilize Frank Lloyd Wright’s highly inventive textile block building system. The Millard House is internationally recognized as one of the world’s most important works of residential architecture. The 4,230 square foot residence sits on nearly an acre of gardens.

The home has four bedrooms and four bathrooms, two kitchens, living room, formal dining room, semi-attached garages and a studio guest house that was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright’s son, Lloyd Wright, a year after the original home was completed. Now, following a multi-year restoration, the complex offers one of the most romantic and creative living spaces anywhere. Sold in 2008 for $7 million, sold again in 2009 for $5 million, the house is now back on the market at $4,995,000, listed here.
