The Robert Llewellyn Wright House is a historic home located at 7927 Deepwell Drive in Bethesda, Maryland, United States. It is a two-story concrete-block structure designed by noted architect Frank Lloyd Wright in 1953, and constructed in 1957 for his sixth child.[2] The Usonian house was designed using intersecting and concentric segments of a circle, or "hemicycles". The house can be seen from Deepwell Drive on a sloping lot that overlooks a stream. It is also visible from the Cabin John Stream Valley Trail, which follows the Cabin John Creek below it. In 1960, the grounds were landscaped by the son of the architect, Lloyd Wright.

It is one of only two Wright-designed structures in Maryland; the other is the Joseph Euchtman House in Baltimore County.[3] The Robert Llewellyn Wright House was added to the National Register of Historic Places on August 12, 1986.[1]
