Frank Lloyd Wright
Frank Lloyd Wright’s iconic Ennis House, also known as Blade Runner house, just has been sold for $18 million, making it the most expensive property designed by the legendary architect ever sold. Join Most Expensive Homes and discover everything about this amazing house!
Designed by Wright and later built by his son Lloyd Wright in 1924, the home is named for its first owners, the wealthy retailer Charles Ennis and his wife, Mabel. It is considered Mayan Revival style, and the exterior is made up of 27,000 perforated and patterned decomposed granite blocks.
Inside, a cinematically long marble hallway spans the length of the main house, connecting various rooms including a formal living room with a mosaic-tiled fireplace, a dramatic formal cathedral-like dining room, and a cozy library with ample windows and stunning views.
The vintage kitchen has black-and-white tiled flooring and a set of glass doors that open out onto a terrace. On the lower level, there is a discrete screening room with a curved bar and an open fireplace. Each of the bathrooms boasts a different patterned tile, and all have leaded glass windows and doors.
In the backyard is a large swimming pool and slender koi pond, and the south-facing side of the home features a number of terraces, balconies, and private courtyards with more amazing views. A gated motor court that can easily accommodate at least a half-dozen cars sits between the main house and the guest quarters.
