A bidder from Nebraska has paid $920,000 for a house designed and built by iconic architect Frank Lloyd Wright in Kansas City, Missouri.

The Kansas City Star reports that Heritage Auctions says new owner wanted to remain anonymous for now, but the bidder plans to honor the integrity of the Sondern-Adler house that sold Monday at auction.

Its spokesman Eric Bradley says the winning bidder realizes the gem he just purchased and plans to keep it a national or destination.

The home had been on the market for 11 months at $1.65 million.

Bidding began at $450,000 and bids quickly soared to $775,000 with the Nebraska bidder on the phone going head-to-head with a representative for a local bidder.

At least 10 serious bidders preregistered for the auction.
