article imageHistoric Frank Lloyd Wright’s Ennis House up for sale

By Sandy Sand     Jun 19, 2009 in Lifestyle
Nothing lasts for ever, and the owners of the historic Frank Lloyd Wright's Ennis House in the Los Feliz district of Los Angeles, can no longer afford to maintain it, and are offering it for sale for $15 million.
Built in 1924, the iconic hilltop home is built from patterned and smooth concrete blocks and over the years has been threatened by man and nature, suffering severe damage in the Northridge earthquake, and is now in a state of disrepair.
Eric Lloyd Wright, the architect’s grandson and member of the nonprofit Ennis House board, told the Los Angeles Times:
…that, given harsh economic realities, private ownership would be the best way to save the house and honor his grandfather's intentions. My grandfather designed homes to be occupied by people. His homes are works of art. He created the space, but the space becomes a creative force and uplifts when it is lived in every day.
The house is being offered by two realtors, Hilton & Hyland and Dilbeck Realtors in Los Angeles, and Christie's Great Estates in Santa Fe, NM, which will handle international marketing.
They estimate that the new owner will have to spend around $6.5 million to restore Ennis House to its original condition.
