A boxy Los Angeles house designed by architect Lloyd Wright, son of acclaimed architect Frank Lloyd Wright, hit the market last week with a $2.995 million price tag.
Built in 1922, the Bollman Residence was Wright’s second commission.
He used precast concrete blocks to create the blocky Mesoamerican style of the home, which has been featured on two covers of Architectural Digest, according to the listing with Crosby Doe of Crosby Doe Associates.
Mr. Doe was not immediately available to discuss the listing.
The four-bedroom house spans 2,518 square feet and has two bathrooms, a formal dining room, a private patio, an entertaining deck and tropical landscaping, the listing said.
The current owners bought the home in 2014 for $1.9 million from designer Mimi London, records with PropertyShark show. They recently embarked on improvements to the home, according to the listing.
Wright first joined his father in Los Angeles in 1919 to assist in the landscaping for the Hollyhock House, the elder Wright’s first Californian project, according to a 1987 New York Times article, and the pair went on to collaborate on a Prairie-style house in the city recently listed for $1.35 million.
A second house designed by Wright, found on nearby Franklin Avenue, is in contract to sell with an asking price of $4.69 million. The house was embroiled in scandal when the unsolved murder of Elizabeth Short, dubbed the Black Dahlia, led investigators to the basement.
Curbed first reported the listing for the Bollman Residence.
