Looking For The Wright Price

Why won't anyone buy a Frank Lloyd Wright house?

"Imagine having a dream home in a private, peaceful, bucolic setting -- and being unable to sell it because it was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright." Some owners of these "one-of-a-kind houses" are having trouble getting them off their hands because prospective buyers are looking for "big garages, large kitchens and spacious bathrooms -- features not generally found in Wright's usonian homes." "But the sellers are also concerned about finding the right Wright buyers -- ones who will cherish, not demolish, his creations." Most owners refuse to sell to anyone looking to demolish the home, no matter what the price.
