While on a 2004 business trip to Phoenix, Arizona, British electrical engineer Hugh Pratt visited the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. As a lifelong admirer of Wright and a fan of midcentury modern architecture he asked the foundation if he might build an unrealized design for himself and his wife.

Pratt then purchased a 12-acre site in Wraxall, a small Somerset village 130 miles west of London, and the foundation agreed that the 1947 design that was intended for Santa Barbara, California, could be transplanted to the UK.
