Location: San Rafael, California

Price: $2,295,000

The spirit of Frank Lloyd Wright runs strong through this single-level home in San Rafael in Marin County, and that’s because it was designed by Wright apprentice Mark Mills. Built in 1968, it’s on the market for the first time ever and appears to be largely untouched (save for the kitchen, which has been updated with stainless steel appliances).

Featuring extensive use of stone, wood, and glass, the four-bedroom-three-bath, 2,769-square-foot property boasts the best of the period and that vaguely-Japanese influence, with its vaulted and beamed ceilings, original built-ins and other angular, geometric furniture, impressive hearth, and fully-glazed walls opening up to the sweeping views of the surrounding mountainscape. Rounding out the property are a wrap-around deck and lap pool—all on over four acres of land. Located at 215 Locust Avenue, it’s asking $2,295,000 after a $100,000 price cut.
