Description

As seen in Architectural Digest, Dwell Magazine, the Press Telegram, & the New York Times, this Lloyd Wright (a.k.a. Frank Lloyd Wright Jr.) designed family residence was built just 4 years after he erected his celebrated Wayfarers Chapel in Rancho Palos Verdes, California. This mid-century modern gem showcases Lloyd Wrights geometric explorations of the time and is characterized by a harmonious blend of lush landscaping, expansive glass panels, ribbed wood paneling, pink cinder block design in the exterior and interior, and striking, soaring rooflines. Surrounded by a tranquil landscape, the property exudes a sense of serenity with native plants, mature trees, and a bamboo forest. Preserved original elements include the cinderblock dual-facing fireplace, slatted interior and exterior walls, built-ins in the closets and in the office, and dramatic hexagonal and triangular footprint. The diagonally scored concrete patio is a replica of the original Lloyd Wright and has the setting for al fresco entertaining. Improvements include a new roof, upgraded electrical and plumbing, new custom windows, new HVAC and tankless water heater. With all its unique design features, this architecturally significant structure recalls the now demolished Moore House of Palos Verdes that Lloyd Wright designed. Per the original design, there is no garage but has a carport that parks 2 cars.
