It's the architectural equivalent of finding a long-lost sibling. In Sammamish, Washington, the Ray Brandes House, a Usonian-style Frank Lloyd Wright home named after the local developer who built it, is one of the area's more recognized modern homes, a singular work of architecture. Or, at least, most people thought the building on 212th Avenue SE was unique.
Turns out a neighboring home just around the corner, the Barbara and James Taylor Home, set back on a wooded lot at 21430 SE 24th Street and hidden in plain sight for decades, was actually built by a Wright apprentice as an homage to the original. After being discovered recently by a local company, LimeLite Development, it's been exhaustively restored and just went on the market for $879,000 earlier this week.
