Frank Lloyd Wright's Sturges House in Brentwood
to be auctioned


One of L.A.’s unique homes, the landmark George D. Sturges House in Brentwood Heights, is going up for auction next month.
Set up from the street on a sloping hillside, the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed residence is part of the estate of actor Jack Larson and his partner, director James Bridges, that will be put up for bidding on Feb. 21.
Considered the only Usonian-style house in California — single-story, middle-class residences designed by the famed Modernist architect — the home was built for George D. Sturges in 1939 under the supervision of architect John Lautner.
Larson and Bridges bought the 1,200-square-foot house in 1967 and commissioned Lautner to its restoration in 1970. Read more...

Ou un petit castel 17ème dans le Gers!!!
