This summer has already seen the University of Southern California presidential residence come and go on the open market. The latest real estate news from the esteemed institution finds it selling off another property: a Frank Lloyd Wright in Hollywood Hills. The home needs restoration, but is priced at an aggressive $4.25 million.
The residence is known as the Samuel and Harriet Freeman House. It dates to 1925, a year after the Ennis House, which is located a couple of miles east and also a Mayan Revival. Like the Ennis House, construction of the Freeman included ornamental concrete blocks that give it a fascinatingly arcane and slightly spooky look.
The home contains three bedrooms and a single bath in its 2,884 sq. ft. of living space. Its interiors are illuminated by large expanses of wood-framed corner glass, which lighten the intense atmosphere of the shared spaces and give them fine city views. The original furnishings that were designed to be dedicated to the home’s design are included in the asking price.
