PHOENIX — A home that famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright designed for his son has been sold for $2.8 million. Real-estate agent Cionne McCarthy says the buyer plans to restore the home, built in 1951, to its original condition.

The 2-acre property includes a guesthouse, pool and a spiral ramp leading to the home’s second-level living space, with a rooftop deck offering views of nearby Camelback Mountain. It was occupied by David Wright and his wife, Gladys. David Wright died in 1997 and his wife died last year. It is one of about 500 houses worldwide that sprang directly from the designs of Frank Lloyd Wright, who died in 1959.
