Frank Lloyd Wright – Ennis House listed

If your feeling cashed up and would love a near perfect Frank Lloyd Wright house, then look no further! The fully-restored Ennis House in Los Feliz, Los Angeles has just been listed for $23 million US, after last selling in 2011 for almost $4.5 million US. The current owner, billionaire Ron Burkle, whom carried out a $17 million restoration after the home had deteriorated over the years and suffered damage in the 1994 earthquake.
The home has all the signature design motifs that would appeal to any Frank Lloyd Wright fan as well as a few Tetris enthusiasts. Fans of the film Blade Runner might also recognise the exterior as one of the buildings used in the movie. Each of the intricate blocks used to build the exterior were built onsite during construction from decomposed granite excavated from the building lot. In this home’s design the small represents the whole, with the overall design of the three-bed, four-bath house consisting of semi-separate wings each in their own “block.” But it is the inside where the typical Wright features really come to life.
The dining room is a classic design by this famed architect with furniture built in so it appears to be part of the home. The oversized windows with prairie style motifs are a part of many of Wright’s designs.
The Ennis House also includes a one-bedroom guest house over the garage and is located at 2607 Glendower Avenue, Los Angeles. The listing agent is Rob de Salvo of Coldwell Banker Global Luxury. Check out the listing
