A Newly Listed $4.25 Million Los Angeles Home Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright ‘Is Not for the Faint of Heart’

By V.L. Hendrickson

The University of Southern California is selling a Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Los Angeles home, one of four in the city using concrete blocks, for $4.25 million.

The Samuel and Harriet Freeman House in the Hollywood Hills was constructed with more than 12,000 cast concrete blocks used both inside and out, and features a salon-style layout with a central hearth, partially open kitchen and several outdoor spaces. It was created by the famed American architect between 1923 and 1925.

The two-bedroom, 2,884-square-foot residence is “a treasure that needs restoration,” said listing agent Mike Deasy, the CEO of Deasy Penner Podley, a brokerage that specializes in architecturally significant and historic properties.

“We’ve seen interest from art collectors and institutions,” Mr. Deasy said.
