The Los Angeles Conservancy is celebrating 40 years of preservation and revitalization of LA’s most significant historic architectural sites. The celebration will take place at none other than the majestic Ennis House, built by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1924. Situated high in the hills of Los Feliz, the Ennis house was originally commissioned by retailer Charles Ennis and constructed out of over 27,000 hand-cast concrete blocks. This building style became known as “textile block” and Wright built several of these homes in the Los Angeles area, with the Ennis House being the grandest one of all. As the years brought on damage and disrepair to the home, the Ennis House Foundation reached out to the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the Frank Lloyd Wright Conservancy and the Los Angeles Conservancy. These organizations joined the Ennis House board to help stabilize the historic property. In 2011, the investor and philanthropist Ron Burkle purchased the Ennis House and was able to further rehabilitate and restore the home with the guidance of the Conservancy.

The Conservancy has partnered with Mr. Burkle to allow for a unique evening at the grand Ennis House on Sunday, November 4th. The event will begin with guided tours of the home and its gardens. Afterwards, an alfresco dinner will take place on the motor court against a backdrop of sweeping city views. This is an event not to be missed as deasy penner podley’s own Mike Deasy will be serving as one of the event co-chairs.
