7 beautiful homes in Southern California

By Loren Talbot

Los Angeles. The Smith House, built by Craig Ellwood in 1958 and restored by architect Jim Tyler in 2018, sits on a hill, and when its glass walls are illuminated at night it appears to float in the landscape. A floor-to-ceiling brick fireplace separates the T-shaped home’s two bedrooms from the main living area.

Outside are 530 square feet of decks and a children’s play space.

Grand Pasadena Spanish-style by Paul Williams asks $3.3M

By Elijah Chiland 

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.

Celebrate the Los Angeles Conservancy’s 40th Anniversary at Frank Lloyd Wright’s Ennis House

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.
