One of Frank Lloyd Wright’s ‘most important’ homes has listed for $4.2m

By Emma Tucker

Recognized as one of the architect’s most significant designs, the Samuel & Harriet Freeman House is up for sale in Hollywood – and it needs an owner that’s ready for some restoration.

Completed in 1925, the two-bedroom property was described by architectural historian Kathryn Smith as one of Wright’s “most important houses” and “the missing link between two World Heritage sites: Taliesin and Fallingwater”.

It’s one of six textile block houses designed by Frank Lloyd Wright – three of which are located in the Hollywood Hills – and is clad in patterned concrete slabs. Other striking details include its transparent diagonal corners and many original furnishings created for the home.

Would-be owners need to be prepared to continue restoration work on the home, however, which was damaged by an earthquake in 1994 and is still in need of repairs to make it habitable. DPP Real Estate has the listing.
