In 2013, an English engineer named Dr. Hugh Pratt asked the village of Wraxall, England for permission to build a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed home on his 12-acre property.
The house originally was planned for a site in Santa Barbara, California but was never realized, and the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation gave its blessing for this revival. As reports, Pratt's was denied by the town council, which ruled that the modern design wasn't "innovative" enough for an exception to build on its Green Belt Land. Pratt appealed the ruling, but his appeal was also denied.

Sadly for Pratt, who pumped more than $150,000 into his effort to build the design, the council's decision seems final. And this design will be the the last of Wright's unrealized plans to get construction permission from the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation "due to questions of fidelity (new homes built on old plans would need to be updated to meet building codes) and confusion over what is a 'new' building or authentic plan, according to then-Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation President and CEO Sean Malone."
