Amid million dollar homes and posh celebrity cribs, every now and then we stumble upon a true gem that (surprisingly) comes with a six figure price tag attached to it.  

Every other week, a new home joins our ‘Fancy Pants Homes under $1 million’ club. But few quite like this one.

Southeast of Las Vegas stands the town of Boulder City. The former federal company town, whose roots only go back to the 1930s — when it was established to house the Hoover Dam workers — is home to approximately 15,000 people; and a rare Frank Lloyd Wright house guaranteed to take your breath away.

The 3-bed, 3-bath home, built based on an original Frank Lloyd Wright concept and completed by one of his students, Harry Thompson, spans over 2,100 square feet and two stories.

While recent renovation work has altered the house’s original white ash kitchen, the property retains its marvelous features: wood-paneled ceilings, a striking two-story rose quartz fireplace, even the burnished copper intercom system unit.

The single-family home last sold in July 2011 for $185,000, according to Zillow; the 5 years that went by since commended more than double that asking, with its owners now listing it for $500,000.
