Frank Lloyd Wright Influence in Alexandria?

Frank Lloyd Wright Bust

Many agents will describe a mid-century modern home as being in the style of Frank Lloyd Wright. Sometimes the comparison is appropriate but many times it does not fit. I think the agent could have used it to describe this custom 1950 house with pool in Alexandria. Look at the prominent stone wall fireplace with planter and wood-beamed ceilings in the living room. Instead of a mention of Wright or organic architecture, it looks like the house is being marketed more for its 1.5 acres. The property is listed at $850K, down from almost $1 million. See images here.
