The Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Fawcett Farm in California’s Central Valley is back on the market. Originally listed for $4,250,000, it was pulled from the market for some time but has been relisted with a reduced price tag of $3,825,000.
The sellers purchased the unique Usonian-style home in 2012 from the original owners, Randall “Buck” Fawcett and Harriett Fawcett. Completed in 1961 based on Wright’s 1955 design, the house is often referred to as the “Fallingwater of the San Joaquin Valley.” The design incorporates materials such as concrete block and copper, and features a koi pond, 12-foot-wide fireplace, open floor plan, and a horizontal roof.
The sellers have been dedicated to preserving the property and hired a team, including Frank Lloyd Wright’s grandson Eric Lloyd Wright and architect Arthur Dyson, for a full restoration shortly after purchasing. They also added a well with a reverse-osmosis water system for the house, gardens, and pool. The property has been enjoyed as a private retreat and family gathering place.
Overall, the Fawcett Farm is a unique piece of architectural history, and offers a rare opportunity for a new owner to cherish a Frank Lloyd Wright masterpiece in the tranquil surroundings of the Central Valley.
