Situated on a roomy Pasadena lot with more than a half-acre of land, this Spanish-style residence sits north of the Rose Bowl and boasts views across the surrounding hills.
Built in 1924, it was designed by influential architect Paul R. Williams and has been dubbed in listing material as the “Flint House.”
The 3,708-square-foot home looks impressive enough for a name. A vine-draped pergola frames the entrance to the two-story residence and trees and neatly landscaped vegetation surround the home on all sides.
Interior features include Spanish tile floors, beamed ceilings, arched entryways, picture windows, and French doors. The house has three bedrooms and four bathrooms, along with a formal dining room and a library with walls of built-in shelving.

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.

A revamped home that once belonged to former Palm Springs mayor Florian Boyd has come up for sale in the desert city for $2.395 million.
Built in 1940, the contemporary residence dons a much different style than the Spanish hacienda vibe it displayed during Boyd’s ownership. The colorful tile and clay tile roof have disappeared, replaced by an indoor-outdoor floor plan under a tongue-and-groove ceiling.
Rows of palms and cacti landscaping fill out the front yard. Inside, four bedrooms and 3.75 bedrooms are spread across 3,260 square feet.
Italian tile floors line the great room, which is brightened by walls of glass. The open-concept space also holds a dining area and sleek kitchen; each are topped by modern lighting fixtures.
