Perched on a Los Felix hilltop overlooking Los Angeles, the Ennis House is waiting for a new owner. Built in 1924, the three-bedroom, five-fireplace home just hit the market and it’s going for $23 million.
Designed by famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright, this home lives up to the builder’s reputation with its angular frame and artful design touches.
While it’s a true three-bedroom, there is a fourth guest bedroom over the garage. There’s also a separate guest house, a private pool, and a billiards room. The home has undergone a years-long renovation amounting to $17 million, an upgrade that’s clear from a quick peek at the photos. According to the listing on Coldwell Banker, the home comes furnished and also has an open patio.
The Ennis House was most recently sold in 2011 for $4.4 million—pre-renovations, of course. The home certainly sticks out among more traditional designs in the neighborhood: The surrounding facade features an imprinted tile design with subtle landscaping. The open-air patio seems the perfect locale for a summer grill-out. And the outdoor tile style continues indoors, with staggering pillars and walls made of the same material. The tile mosaics throughout the home are museum-worthy in their own right.
