The Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Ennis House in Los Feliz has landed on the Multiple Listing Service at $15 million.
The 1924 concrete-block structure has four bedrooms and 4 1/2 bathrooms in about 6,000 square feet. The Mayan-inspired state landmark sits on about three-quarters of an acre with city, canyon and ocean views.
Architectural details include high wood-beamed ceilings, art-glass windows, a window-lined loggia looking out on the pool and a glass mosaic-tile fireplace in the living room. There is a billiard room, bar, library, den, office, pantry and basement. Chauffeur's quarters, with a bedroom, bathroom, kitchenette and living area, are above the four-car garage.
The seller is the Ennis House Foundation, a nonprofit that has spent about $6.5 million to restore the estate, the largest example of Wright's "textile block" style using patterned concrete. The house, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, "needs more stewardship at this point than a small nonprofit can sustain," the foundation states on its website.
The listing is shared by Jeffrey Hyland, Rick Hilton and Aaron Kirman of Hilton & Hyland, Beverly Hills, and Ray Hayes and Mark Dilbeck of Dilbeck Realtors, San Marino and South Pasadena.Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
