The Frank Lloyd Wright–Designed Freeman House in L.A. Is Listed for $4.25 Million

By Rachel Davies

After over 30 years of being in the ownership of the University of Southern California, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Freeman house is up for sale. Built nearly a century ago between 1923 and 1925, the two bedroom, one bathroom home that historian Kathryn Smith describes as “one of Wright’s 20 most important houses” is going for $4.25 million.

The 2,884 square foot hillside property is encased in over 12,000 textured concrete blocks and miter-cut windows, and is one of four homes Wright made using textile blocks. Though USC did spend over $1 million on renovating the Freeman after the 1994 Northridge earthquake, it is in need of a proper restoration. Small improvements were made to the property by John Lautner, Gregory Ain, Robert Clark, and Rudolf Schindler. Purchase of the home also includes much of its original gorgeous wood furnishings which were also designed by Schindler and flawlessly complement the home. The residence is a Los Angeles Historic Cultural Monument and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
