The late American architectFrank Lloyd Wright designed only three homes in Texas – and one of them just hit the market in Houston, according to R. Clay Joyner from JPAR-The Sears Group.

The six-bedroom property, called the William Thaxton house, is for sale for $US2.85 million.

The original home – built in 1955 – was supposed to cost around $US5,000, but William Thaxton was eager to bring residents to the countryside and called upon Wright to design a home in the $US110,000 to $US115,000 range on Bunker Hill (equivalent to around $US1.1 million today), Joyner told Business Insider.

Joyner also confirmed to Business Insider that in true Wright fashion, everything in the original house was designed on a 60- or 120-degree angle. He also built all the furniture. Today, every piece of furniture in the dining room, den, and living area is a Wright original. Only a few properties still include Wright’s furniture.

In 1995, Kirksey Architecture renovated the Thaxton House by adding a patio, courtyard, and additional living space, according to the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy.
