Be Inspired by This Luxury Home Created by Architect Frank Lloyd Wright – This week, PullCast Blog will give you some real estate magic and some amazing architectural history! This article is about one of the many projects of legendary architect Frank Lloyd Wright that recently was put on sale and it’s agitating the real estate market in Los Angeles!
But first, let us talk a little about Frank Lloyd Wright. This respected American architect designed more than 1,000 structures during his lifetime (532 of which were completed) and was known for championing the Prairie School architecture movement, which was marked by homes with horizontal lines and broad leaves that recall the sweeping prairie landscape.
He died in 1959, but nearly six decades after Wright’s death his architectural legacy lives on in a variety of striking homes he designed from Connecticut to California. One of Wright’s most iconic properties—the geometric, temple-like Ennis House, which is located in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles, California, is now on sale for $23 million.
Wright designed the impressive manse in 1923, and his son Lloyd Wright built the hilltop home the following year. The Mayan-style residence is the final and largest of Wright’s four Los Angeles–area textile block houses, which feature patterned, perforated concrete blocks painstakingly made by hand. Spread across nearly 6,200 square feet, the house and guesthouse were fashioned from more than 27,000 blocks.
Although it has been recognized as a remarkable architectural landmark, the property suffered from years of poor maintenance as well as damage from the 1994 Northridge earthquake. After purchasing the home for $4.5 million in 2011, billionaire Ron Burkle spent a nearly $17 million in a renovation that refreshed and revitalized the historic haunt. The famed structure then served as a filming location for Hollywood hits such as “Blade Runner”. Burkle also allowed the public to access the house for several days each year per the terms of a conservation easement with the Los Angeles Conservancy.
In both the three-bedroom main house and guest apartment atop the garage, walls of ornate columns and large glass windows frame the Los Angeles skyline. And a screening/billiard room and swimming pool allow residents to relax alongside guests. The real estate agency Ron de Salvo of Coldwell Banker Global Luxury holds the listing, so if you are interested to give them a call. And if you buy the property, don’t forget to buy some PullCast Pulls to enrich its amazing interiors! We bet some Pulls from the Cosmopolitan Collection would look great here!
