The Tracy House is a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Usonian automatic home that was constructed in Normandy Park, Washington, a suburb near Seattle, in 1956.

The house, like other Wright-designed Usonian automatics, is composed of concrete blocks that is broken up by glass and redwood plywood. The Tracy House is 1,150 square feet (107 m2) and has three bedrooms and one bathroom as well as a two-car garage; the lot itself is 31,000 square feet (2,900 m2) and faces the Puget Sound.[2]

The Tracy House was built for Bill and Elizabeth Tracy, who occupied it until the latter's death in 2012; the property was listed on the real estate market for the first time at a price of $950,000.[3]

In 2011, Seattle Met named it one of the ten greatest homes in the Seattle area.[4]
