Location: La Cañada Flintridge, California
Price: $2,395,000

This Wrightian take on the single-story California ranch house, built in 1946 by Frank Lloyd Wright's son Lloyd Wright, was recently renovated and is, simply, a dream. Known as the Emanuel Gainsburg house (named for the pharmacist who commissioned it), the 4-bedroom, 4-bath gem of a home clocks in at over 3,000 square feet and is set on more than half an acre. The house nestles in foothills in La Cañada Flintridge, California, north of central Los Angeles, and is a redwood stone, concrete, and glass homage to the low-slung forms of Wright's famous father and a hint at what was to come in the design of fabulous modern houses in and around L.A. A renovation, led by local architect Rick Corsini, updated the kitchen, cabinetry, and mechanical systems, according to the listing. Take a look!
