Did you know that the Ennis House designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in Los Angles is for sale?
For the past couple of weeks, I have been meaning to write about this sale, because our good friend Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland likes Frank Lloyd Wright homes. Over the years, I have written a few blog posts about this great home. Many years ago the house was falling on disrepair and the Foundation tried to sell it for around $15 million dollars. Then Billionaire Ron Burkel bought it for south of $5 million dollars in 2011. He spent depending on who you talk to anywhere from 12-17 million dollars fixing it up. I considered it a good deed. It would have been such a shame letting it further deteriorate.
Interestingly, I sold a home a few years ago which was just a couple homes from this great historic home. My client’s wife was not so thrilled about having this huge historic home next door from them. The reasons were many and one of them was of course the tourist traffic. Needless to say the views to Downtown Los Angeles trumped the concern😊.
Now if you are wondering what the asking price is? Well for what it is I might say it is a bargain at $23 million dollars. The owner will basically break even when he sells it. Now let’s be honest that is not so bad if you are a billionaire and you did this good deed to preserve a historic home for future generations. Besides getting a fixed up and well maintained historic home you get with it the best views in Los Angeles and the living area is about 6000 sq. ft. and let’s not forget a Guest Quarters above the detached garage is not something to complain about.
