A Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired home in Savannah, Georgia, is set to be sold without reserve at a live action on Oct. 8.

The 6,595-square-foot residence, with four bedrooms and five-and-a-half bathrooms, is part of the exclusive Modena Island community on Skidaway Island. Platinum Luxury Auctions will handle the sale of the house, which is currently listed for $2.7 million by Bay Street Realty Group, part of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices.

Overlooking the Skidaway and Wilmington rivers and the surrounding marshes, the home was designed to “take maximum advantage of the views,” according to Sandra Mayer, who owns the home with her husband, Donald.

“Our inspiration for the house design was to bring outdoor living in and inside living out [by] using extensive glass and warm wood finishes, elevated decking, landscaping and gardening, and the arts-and-crafts feeling reflecting the Frank Lloyd Wright architectural style,” she wrote in an email.?

Mr. Mayer is a fourth-generation descendant of the hot dog purveyor Oscar Mayer. His father, also named Oscar, ran the family company until 1977, before it was sold to Kraft foods in the 1980s. There’s even a “WienerMobile” in the garage, although it isn’t included in the sale.

The couple has lived in the home for more than 20 years, but are now looking to downsize, Ms. Mayer noted. It was first listed in December 2019 for $3.4 million.

Highlights include “the great room with its soaring glass walls, the second-floor office with its glass corner skylight...and, of course, the kitchen, the nerve center of our home,” according to Ms. Mayer.

The great room also features a wet bar and double-sided gas fireplace surrounded by Tennessee river rock and a Mahogany mantle, while the kitchen has Gaggenau appliances and a breakfast nook that leads to a covered outdoor patio.

The master suite has two balconies, a master bath with dual vanities and closets and the private office, equipped with a galley kitchen, custom built-ins and reading nook. There are two additional en-suite bedrooms, plus a media room on the upper level.

Outside, there’s a heated, infinity-edge pool and spa, a firepit and covered lounging and dining areas. The house sits on just more than an acre of landscaped lawns and gardens.
