This home is totally unique with tons of amazing history! The home is 4,449 square feet in the prestigious Los Feliz Oaks neighborhood. Designed by Lloyd Wright in 1928, this home is an original Los Feliz gem. The home was designed for Hollywood business manager, Louis Samuel by the son of legendary architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Lloyd Wright’s signature design element, the now-weathered hammered copper flashing provides both beauty and functionality – protecting the porous concrete from air and moisture.
The home was also owned by silent movie star Ramon Novarro in 1931. Novarro then remodeled the home, and added several rooms to the property, as well as a walled garden. The upgrades have continued over the years, but the property still displays many mayan-inspired elements, and great built ins. Check out those awesome back lit shelves featured in the photo above.
The home has been meticulously restored to incorporate modern design elements like polished concrete floors, dramatic windows and more. The huge master suite has plenty of space for a sitting area and tons of natural light pouring in from the many, large, dramatic windows.
There is also a private, enclosed, in ground pool steps from the living room – great for entertaining. The property is also host to terrace spaces, a jasmine covered walkway, and bamboo tree lined sitting areas.
The gourmet kitchen is covered with marble counter tops and back splashes, and features professional grade, stainless steel appliances. The windows add an interesting architectural element, and an creative geometric pattern adding to the many clean lines and sleek feel throughout the property.
More recently, the home was owned by celebrities such as Diane Keaton, Christina Ricci, and record producer John Carter. The home is also rumored to have been leased to Leonard Bernstein, Jerome Robbins, Betty Comden, and Adolph Green while they were writing the Broadway musical “On The Town” according to msnbc.com.
