Built in 1923, the Millard House (aka, La Miniatura) was Frank Lloyd Wright’s first project using his modular textile block, a technology with which he hoped to “take the despised concrete block and turn it into a thing of beauty.” One look at this lovely home, with its richly textured brocade-like walls, and I'd say he succeeded.
Recognized by Wright as his earliest “Usonian” house, the Millard House is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It is also currently for sale. The property includes a residence and studio, nestled into an acre of gardens within the Prospect Historic District of Pasadena. List price: $4,495,000.
