When a house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright comes on the market, we take note. Don't you?

I mean, wouldn't everyone want to live in a one-of-a-kind masterpiece from one of the greatest—and certainly the most famous and most influential—architects who ever lived? We would ... and knowing that you would too makes us keep an eye out.

Here are a few of the Wright houses that have come up for sale in the past couple of years.

Los Angeles Modern Auction

George D. Sturges Residence in Los Angeles
Put up for auction on Feb. 21, 2016, as part of the homeowner's, actor Jack Larson, estate auction held by Los Angeles Modern Auctions (LAMA).
The house ended up not selling at the auction. In a statement to Curbed, LAMA said that "due to the home’s unique historical and cultural significance, it has become apparent that more time is needed for prospective buyers to assess what can and should be done to preserve this historical gem."
