What price can be put on history? In the case of a Marin home designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, famous American architect: about $2.5 million.

That's the asking price for an Usonian home in San Anselmo, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. The home was built by Robert Berger, a Marin teacher who asked Wright for a design to use for his own home. He built the home himself, living on the lot while it was under construction -- but died before it could be completed, two decades after he begun.

Berger's wife completed the home, hiring professionals to do so. The house is now on the market for the first time.

The house has two bedrooms and two baths, and faithful to the Usonian design, the centerpiece of the interior is a large fireplace, which anchors a living/family area, the newspaper reported.
