Cannabis Mogul Sells Exotic, Mysterious Lloyd Wright-Designed Showpiece

By Wendy Bowman

Back in early 2018, CBD entrepreneur Dan Goldfarb doled out nearly $4.7 million for a historic Lloyd Wright-designed residence in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles. A former hedge-fund analyst from New York who founded Canna-Pet — a Seattle-based company that sells hemp CBD for pets — he planned to use the space as a hub for social and fund-raising events.

Now, a little over four years later, Goldfarb and his wife Jenny Landers have sold their unique home. The buyer, records indicate, is Nate Daneshgar — a member of a wealthy Beverly Hills family that made their money in commercial real estate and are perhaps best known for owning DTLA’s Grand Central Market. Daneshgar forked over just under $6.2 million for the place in an off-market deal, or almost $1.5 million more than Goldfarb and Landers paid for the property back in April 2018.

Originally designed and built in 1926 by Lloyd Wright (the son of famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright) for painter and photographer John Sowden and his wife Ruth — and aptly named the “Sowden House” — the neo-Mayan structure has also been nicknamed “the Jaws House,” for its ominous shark teeth-like exterior entrance.
