While Lloyd Wright’s name is often confused with his legendary father, Frank Lloyd Wright, his contribution to the architectural landscape of Southern California couldn’t be more distinct.
Lloyd Wright designed several homes using the “textile block” system, including the Mayan-inspired Sowden House in Los Feliz and the Samuel-Novarro House in Hollywood. His work included “bold, soaring forms; unusual colors and materials; careful siting; and of course, integrated landscape” with a touch of theatrics.
Lloyd also designed the first shell of the Hollywood Bowl and incorporates stepped design elements in the welcoming entry of the Calori House, a two-story Spanish Colonial Revival sited on a .28-acre lot in Chevy Chase Canyon, located at 3021 E. Chevy Chase Drive.
Restored in 2016, home features a box stepped open plan interior, magnesite staircase, archways, and two fireplaces. The kitchen is updated with marble countertops and stainless steel appliances and the updated master bathroom includes a vintage looking claw foot tub surrounded by wood-frame casement windows.
With every room opening to the outdoors, the home takes full advantage of a nearly unheard of flat grassy back yard in the canyons. Listed on Glendale’s Historic Register, the residence is on the market asking $1.695 million and comes with an attached two-car garage.
