Lloyd Wright's Restored Gainsburg House Hits the Market

New, 28 comments


Well looky here, Lloyd Wright's Gainsburg House in La Cañada is on the market for the first time in more than a decade. Built in 1948 and recently restored and updated by architect Richard Corsini, this angular house with "a geometric floor plan and sloping, angular roofline" has four bedrooms, three and a quarter baths in 3,200 square feet. When the house was featured in the LA Times in 2001, the write-up mentioned "Asian design touches as Shoji doors to separate the living and dining rooms and hand-painted screens to partition areas in the kitchen," which we aren't seeing in the reno, but the large cement block fireplace is there, along with lots of lovely built-ins. The kitchen's all new, and outside is a reflecting pool and mature landscaping that's been featured on garden tours for nearly a decade. Sited on a 0.68-acre lot, the house is on the market for $2.225 million.
