The Circular Sun House, also known as the Norman Lykes House, was designed by architect Frank Lloyd Wright in 1959. Architect John Rattenbury, an apprentice of Wright, completed the home in 1967. Designed to blend in with the curves of the surrounding desert mountain, this iconic masterpiece was the last home designed by Wright and one of only 14 circular homes by the master architect. Overlapping concentric circles create a floor plan that flows seamlessly from one room to another while every room takes in unobstructed majestic views of Palm Canyon and the city below. Curved walls, clad in golden-hued Philippine mahogany cover the three bedrooms and hallway, reflecting the natural light of Palm Canyon. Sprawling entertaining spaces flow outside to ample patios and a crescent-shaped pool. Finishes include stainless wrapped kitchen counters, honed Italian rose marble in master bath, handpicked slate floors from India, and of course, the original Hope’s Windows. A masterful design embodying the beautiful natural landscape, this home was constructed of coloured concrete block to blend with the surrounding boulders. Near the Phoenix Biltmore, and constructed on the edge of the Phoenix Mountain Preserve capturing the city lights and views. Property records show the home last selling in 2019 for $1.6 million. The Circular Sun House is on the market for $7.95 million with Deanna Peters of Homesmart.
