It was planned to dismantle Rudolph's 1956 Cerrito House in Rhode Island, USA, and transport it 200 miles to the Catskills, New York State.
However, it is understood that negotiations began to slow as arguments over details, such as timing and liability broke out, and it is now believed that talks have completely ground to a halt after Sachs and Lindores visited the property.
According to Sachs, who saw the house on Monday, the property is irreparably damaged, with many of the original fixtures and fittings torn out.
Speaking to the New York Times Sachs said: 'For us this seemed insane. How could this have happened? It's not in its original condition anymore.'
The news will come as a bitter disappointment to Rudolph enthusiasts, not least the Paul Rudolph Foundation which was in line to receive the house as a donation.
Rudolph's work has become increasingly threatened of late. This year alone has seen his Minute Man Hill house demolished ( Rudolph home demolished despite massive opposition ) and his Blue Shield tower in Boston looks likely to follow the same fate.
But few will be as disappointed as Sachs, who, somewhat prematurely, removed 75 large trees from his Catskills home, as well as building a road for the house's delivery.
