Eagle Rock Mid-Century With Trace of Lloyd Wright Asks $819k

New, 14 comments


Last week, the market was introduced to the Bollman Residence, designed by the very-talented-in-his-own-right Lloyd Wright (son of Frank) in 1922. This week brings us yet another Wright-related residence, albeit one with a more tenuous connection. According to the listing copy for this Eagle Rock mid-century, "the pool and one side of the house were once part of a sprawling estate designed by renowned architect Lloyd Wright. The mansion was owned by prolific screenwriter Bill Conselman, who also wrote the popular 1920s comic strip Ella Cinders. After the land was subdivided, the guest/pool house was expanded to create the current home." Unfortunately, judging from the listing photos, the person responsible for the expansion/remodel was no Lloyd Wright, Senior or Junior. While the 2,095-square-foot house's living room is blessed with a lovely beamed cathedral ceiling, fireplace, wall of windows, and sweeping views, the rest of it is a Home Depot-ed hash. Oh well. Sited on a .42-acre hillside lot, the four-bedroom, three-bath property is asking $819,000.
