A Frank Lloyd Wright home in Phoenix, AZ that was set to be demolished was saved at the last minute by an anonymous buyer.

According to CNN, a picturesque home that Frank Lloyd Wright built in Phoenix for his son, David, and daughter-in-law, Gladys, in 1952, was set for demolition. The home was purchased by a developer after their deaths.

Since then, there has been a campaign to save the historical piece of architecture. CNN now reports that an anonymous buyer, with plans to preserve it, has purchased the home for an undisclosed amount.

Now that the purchase has been finalized, the property will be transferred to an Arizona not-for-profit organization responsible for the restoration, maintenance and operation of the David Wright House, SaveWright.org said on its website.

More information on this and other stories pertaining to the preservation of Wright’s work can be found at the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy website, SaveWright.org:
