KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A bidder from Nebraska has paid $920,000 for a house designed and built by iconic architect Frank Lloyd Wright in Kansas City, Missouri.
Heritage Auctions says the new owner wanted to remain anonymous for now, but the bidder plans to honor the integrity of the Sondern-Adler house that sold Monday at auction.
Auction house spokesman Eric Bradley says the winning bidder realizes the gem he just purchased and plans to keep it a national destination.
The home had been on the market for 11 months at $1.65 million.
Bidding began at $450,000 and bids quickly soared to $775,000, with the Nebraska bidder on the phone going head-to-head with a representative for a local bidder.
At least 10 serious bidders preregistered for the auction.
