Frank Lloyd Wright’s Famous Ennis House is on the Market for $23 Million

Frank Lloyd Wright designed some of the most impressive homes across America, and Ennis House in Los Angeles is no exception. The Mayan Revival property perched on a hilltop overlooking downtown L.A. has been featured on screen more than 80 times, most notably in the 1982 film Blade Runner starring Harrison Ford and directed by Ridley Scott. Now that it’s on the market for $23 million, cameras have been allowed in for a real-life tour. Scroll down for a look inside the property.

The house was built in 1924 for retailer Charles Ennis and his wife, Mabel.

Frank Lloyd Wright’s son, Lloyd, oversaw the construction, which included “more than 27,000 patterned and perforated decomposed granite blocks,” according to Variety.

The Ennis House Foundation sold the home to billionaire Ron Burkle for $4.5 million in 2011.
It had previously listed it for $15 million.

Burkle spent a fortune restoring the property, which had fallen into disrepair.

The restoration cost nearly $17 million, according to listing agent Ron de Salvo of Coldwell Banker Global Luxury.

The house is unlike anything else on the market.

Overall, it measures about 6,000 square feet.

Large glass windows provide a view of downtown Los Angeles.

There are guest quarters atop the detached garage.

A swimming pool was added sometime after 1940.

Interesting architectural details are everywhere.

Some of the living and dining space has exposed wooden beam ceilings.

For $23 million, it could be yours.
