This Historic Frank Lloyd Wright Home in LA Is a Designated Cultural Monument. It Can Be Yours for $4.25 Million.

If you've ever wondered what it could be like to live in an American monument, now is your chance to find out.
The Samuel & Harriet Freeman home in Los Angeles, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, went on sale Wednesday for $ 4,250,000. With a 270-degree view of Hollywood and the LA Basin, the historic home is located on a hill above Highland Boulevard and Franklin Avenue. What makes this Wright property so unique? The architect built the 2,884 square meter residence from 12,000 textured concrete blocks and completed it in 1925 with two bedrooms, a bathroom, a semi-open kitchen, and a stove. As one of only four of Wright's projects with the ornate blocks, the house's textile design is exposed both outside and inside.

In addition to the property's numerous outdoor terraces and roof terraces, the house offers original furniture that was designed exclusively for the house by Rudolf Schindler. Over the years it has also received smaller nips and tucks from renowned American architects such as John Lautner and Gregory Ain, among others. Today the house is awaiting restoration, but the residence is on 6,802 square feet, which means you have plenty of space to update the property if you wish. Of course, there may be some restrictions as the home is a Los Angeles Historic Monument and listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The Hollywood Hills home was originally commissioned by Samuel and Harriet Freeman in 1923 and served as an entertainment salon. In 1986 the couple donated the property to the University of Southern California. Most recently, the architectural historian Kathryn Smith named the house as one of the "20 most important houses of Wright". She called the property a missing link between two World Heritage sites: Taliesan and Fallingwater. "The spatial design, the main room that opens up through transparent diagonal corners, the unique concrete block details and the bold hillside location with a wide view of the city ... all create a spectacular expression," she said.

For anyone interested in this historic LA home, the Frank Lloyd Wright Freeman House website has detailed plans of the first floor, first floor, and south and east elevations. Of course, nothing beats a personal viewing, so potential buyers can also schedule a viewing with Deasy Penner Podley, the real estate company that keeps the listing. Of course, it would be a monumental purchase.
