From the Associated Press:
A real estate agent who has been trying to sell a Frank Lloyd Wright home for two years is considering an inquiry from clients who would move it from Southern California to Japan.
La Miniatura in Pasadena is among two of Wright’s experimental textile-block homes that have languished on the market.
In 2008 agent Crosby Doe listed the partially restored home at $7.7 million, but recently dropped it to under $5 million.
He says it is a long shot but he has been talking to an international art dealer with Japanese art-collector clients who might be interested in buying the house. He says the London Bridge was moved to the Colorado River, so it’s possible Wright’s house can be moved to Japan.
Wright built four of the masonry homes in the early 1920s, all in Southern California.
