San Anselmo's famous Frank Lloyd Wright-designed home just hit the market for $2.5 million, according to Curbed. And it's a beauty.

Designed by Wright and built by the homeowner, Robert Berger, the two-bedroom, two-bathroom 1,760-square-foot house showcases Wright's classic midcentury style with a touch of Northern California sentiment. Stone and woodwork make up the home, with sharp geometric angles inside and out. A main room is anchored by an enormous stone hearth, and floor to ceiling windows give the space a tree house feel.
But though the designer, the house and the location would be enough of a sell, the adorable backstory doesn't hurt either.
According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Berger was an engineering teacher who wrote to Wright, asking him for a design for a house that he could build himself. Not only did Wright oblige, but he also sent along blueprints for a doghouse, free-of-charge, after Berger's 12-year-old wrote separately to request them.
"I was probably his youngest and poorest client," remembered the boy, Jim Berger, who is now 68, in an interview with the Associated Press.
