USC is selling its Frank Lloyd Wright home in Hollywood Hills

By Trevor Bach

Just days after unloading its presidential mansion for $25 million, the University of Southern California wants to sell another high-profile property: A Frank Lloyd Wright-designed home in the Hollywood Hills.

The Freeman House listed for $4.25 million, a price that includes “many of the original furnishings designed for the house,” according to Deasy Penner Podly, which has the listing. The 2,884-square-foot property, which includes walls made of textile blocks, is on a hilltop at 1962 Glencoe Way. It was assessed in the last year at $687,000, according to PropertyShark.

USC said it was looking for “a conservation-minded buyer” who “can properly rehabilitate and maintain” the historic home, which is in need of repair.

USC’s School of Architecture called the home — built in 1924 — among the iconic architect’s “most interesting and enchanting small residences.” The design helped influence the development of Southern California modernism, the school noted.
