On The Market: Lloyd Wright's Sowden House For Rent

New, 36 comments

It looks like Lloyd Wright's famous Franklin Avenue Sowden House hasn't sold, despite being on the market for over two years now. With a price so high that it's only "available upon request" the house has languished with no buyers. No worries. The house is now available for rent instead, fully furnished. The 7-bedroom, 4-bath house was purchased in 2002 by designer-developer Xorin Balbes, who did a remodel of the house and made it his personal residence upon completion. The new additions include "a kitchen suitable for a five-star chef and a master suite which can't help but soothe and relax." He also added a new pool and spa. Rental price: $25,000 per month.
