The Millard House in Pasadena, California, by Frank Lloyd Wright, was built in 1924. Recognised as the earliest ‘Usonian’ house, it is also the first residence to utilise Wright’s textile block building system. Also known as La Miniatura, the house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Sited on nearly an acre of gardens within the Prospect Historic District of Pasadena, the residence and studio include four bedrooms, four bathrooms, two kitchens, a living room, a formal dining room, and semi-detached garages. Following a multi-year restoration, it is now on the market for $3,950,000. For more information visit Crosby Doe Associates.
