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.
