I was introduced to Frank Lloyd Wright in my teens or early 20's after watching a PBS documentary.  It showed his Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture and the compound.  I was mesmerized by it and was never really attracted to architecture before.

las hadas villas scottsdale condo condominium for sale

5640 E Bell Rd, #1082, Scottsdale, Arizona  85254

I had to update this before I even posted it. This cute Scottsdale condo sold in one day and has already sold and closed.

This was the popular 2 master bedrooms (on two levels, each with full bath access) with a loft on the upper level. The loft had its own closet and was set up with a trundle bed and dresser for a 3rd bedroom, which was perfect for guests.

The main level featured an open living concept from the living room, through the dining area and the kitchen. The fireplace was used on cold winter nights. Plantation shutters kept the hot sun out.

The laundry room was on the main level right off of the kitchen and had storage cabinets. The washer and dryer were about 3 years young.
