Only a few weeks ago, the first single-family residence attributed to Lloyd Wright—the Prairie-style Weber House in Mid-Wilshire—popped up on the market. A sale is currently pending on that property, but now the second home designed by Frank Lloyd Wright’s oldest son has come up for grabs.

The Henry Bollman Residence—Los Angeles Cultural Historic Monument No. 235—was commissioned by a contractor who worked with Wright.

Completed in 1923, the Hollywood home is the earliest example of the architect’s use of the “knit-block” construction system subsequently employed for his father’s Millard, Freeman, Ennis, and Storer residences. Like the Ennis and Millard houses, the Bollman Residence reflects a Meso-American influence.

Situated on an 8,102-square-foot lot in the Sunset Square HPOZ, the two-story home features four bedrooms, two baths, an updated kitchen, hardwood and concrete slab floors, a stone fireplace, and a tropically landscaped garden.

Per the listing, the house, which was formerly owned by designer Mimi London, has “earned two covers of Architectural Digest.

Last sold in 2014 for $1.9 million, it’s now asking $2.995 million.
