Built in 1924 for retailer Charles Ennis and his wife Mabel, the Ennis House is the last and largest of Wright’s four Los Angeles-area “textile block” houses which feature patterned and perforated concrete blocks that give a unique textural appearance to both their exteriors and interiors. The house and chauffeur’s quarters span roughly 6,200 square feet and were constructed of more than 27,000 concrete blocks; all made by hand using decomposed granite extracted from the site.

In 2011, the Ennis House was purchased by business executive and founder of the Yucaipa Companies Ron Burkle for just under $4.5 million and is undergoing major restorations.

> Guided 50-minute tours by a member of the restoration team

> Exclusive tour is limited to 120 ticket buyers only
