If you are in the market for a home designed by an architect who had a significant impact on the Southern California aesthetic or you simply want to look at a luxury home being sold by a celebrity, there are plenty of new options available on the market. Here is a look at some of the latest gems that are now available in the area.
Lloyd Wright’s La Cañada Flintridge Ranch House
A single-story house in La Cañada Flintridge that was designed by Lloyd Wright, son of architect Frank Lloyd Wright, has been placed on the market for $2.4 million. Designed to represent Wright’s version of what a Ranch house should look like and completed in 1948, the home consists primarily of redwood stone, concrete and glass. Resting on a half acre of land in the foothills, the 3,172-square-foot home has recently experienced updates to its kitchen, mechanical systems and cabinets. The four-bedroom, four-bathroom home, which features at least two large fireplaces, was last sold in 2013 for $1.875 million.
Donald Wexler’s Mid-Century Modern Home in Palm Springs
This Mid-Century Modern Palm Springs house that Donald Wexler built for himself and his family is available for $1.75 million. Wexler is best known as being the brainchild behind that Mid-Century Modern aesthetic that Palm Springs is known for boasting today. After arriving for a six-month assignment in the area in the early 1950s, Wexler decided to stay in the area and later pioneered the steel-framed Modernist house that dominates the city today. Wexler built his personal home in 1955 and kept it until he sold it in the 1990s. Features of the three-bedroom, two-bathroom home include an open floor plan, plenty of windows and classic Wexler style. The home also underwent a remodel under the supervision of Wexler in 2008, completing what he referred to as “the final evolution” of his aesthetic. The remodel was awarded Preservation of the Year from the LA Conservancy’s Modern Committee in 2009. Updated features include a saltwater pool, desert landscaping, a garage, a privacy hedge and a modern kitchen.
Diane Keaton’s Pacific Palisades Home
While Diane Keaton may be best known in the real estate world for her commitment to preserving an Arts District warehouse or restoring a Lloyd Wright home before putting it back on the market, the actress is now getting attention for putting her Pacific Palisades home on the market for $6.995 million. Built only six years ago, the 7,800 square foot, six-bedroom home has only undergone minor cosmetic changes since Keaton purchased it. Among these are some new paint and some changes to lighting fixtures. Other features include a pool and spa, a gym, a wine room, a home theater and roof deck.
