The Sowden House

A few months ago I had the distinct privilege of seeing the inside of Lloyd Wright's Sowden House on Franklin Ave. on the border of Los Feliz (one of the perks of being a docent at the Hollyhock House). The house is closed to the public and rented out periodically. It was built in 1926 and underwent a massive renovation in 2001. It was one of the most spectacular houses I've EVER seen! Unfortunately...I'm not allowed to release the pictures I took of the inside of the house =/ Private use only. But if you have a chance to drop by the house or take a closer look next time you're driving down Franklin, the front of the house is pretty awe-inspiring. Between the movies that have been filmed there and the Black Dahlia rumors swirling around it, the house is incredibly fascinating and I'll never forget the experience!
