George Sturges Residence / Frank Lloyd Wright


Described by the agent as a masterpiece of American design, the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed The Sturges Residence in Los Angeles, California is up for sale for the first time in 50 years. Formerly the home of actor Jack Larson and his partner James Bridges, the house is part of sale of his estate, with proceeds of the house and other lots (which include original art by David Hockney and Andy Warhol) going to the Bridges/Larson Foundation.

So that’s the sale. What about the house? That’s something very special. The only Usonian-style house in this particular state, it was designed in 1939 by Frank Lloyd Wright, with construction overseen by John Lautner. The house was restored back in 1970, with that work again overseen by Lautner.

According to the agent, the pre-sale estimate is $2,500,000 – $3,000,000 — via WowHaus
