Take a look inside Frank Lloyd Wright's last home that's up for auction

The legendary Norman Lykes house, designed by architect Frank Lloyd Wright, will be up for auction on Oct. 16. It was the last residence designed by Wright, who designed many iconic homes, including "Fallingwater" in Pennsylvania, as well as the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York City.

The home was last listed for $2.65 million by The Agency, but it has been on and off the market since 2016. The Phoenix, Arizona, home will be auctioned off, regardless of price, by Heritage Auctions.

"This no-reserve auction presents a tremendous opportunity for fans of Frank Lloyd Wright to own his very last residential design," says Nate Schar, director of Luxury Real Estate for Heritage Auctions, in a release. "[The home's] stewards have been careful to preserve as much as possible of Wright's vision. It's a very special home."

The look of the three-bedroom, three-bathroom home was influenced by Wright's "fascination with geometry," Schar says, including his signature circular designs. Take a look inside the 3,095-square-foot home.

"Curved lines in the home play off the curves of the Phoenix Mountains, and the cantilevered roofline provides natural shade on the south-facing façade," Brent Lewis, director of design for Heritage Auctions, says. "The windows never see direct sun, yet the house is light and bright."

Wright completed the design for the home in 1959, shortly before the opening of the Guggenheim Museum. The home was ultimately built in 1967, after Wright's death, and completed by his apprentice John Rattenbury.
