Leave it to Frank Lloyd Wright to build homes that are not only impossible to live in, but also impossible to maintain (see Falling Water’s effort to raise $500,000 for window repair alone). While a non-profit failed to raise enough funds for a renovation of the fellow Frank Lloyd Wright Mayan Revival, the Ennis House, a private owner fit the bill for the Storer House.
The action film aficionado, Joel Silver, might be best known for bringing us the franchises of Die Hard, Lethal Weapon, and The Matrix, but he’s also effectuated two Frank Lloyd Wright restorations – one in South Carolina, and the other with this Hollywood Hills home. This 1923 historic structure, recognized by both the city and the national registry, was purchased by Silver in 1984 and saved from disrepair.
