Eric Lloyd Wright’s greatest influence was clearly his father, yet this 1992 home north of Los Angeles exposes his own personal twist on the Prairie School.
The Wystrach-Adams Residence is characterised by avant-garde curves, vaulted ceilings, slanted skylights and built-in wood furnishings that hug the walls. Tall banks of glass in every room push natural light into the easy flow of spaces, faced in raw concrete, tile and teak.
Tall glass doors in the main space looout to the forested mountainscape and a 13,000-square-foot garden designed by Greg Sullivan with cedar, mulberry, pine, citrus and flowering trees. Three outdoor decks with built-in benches jut further into the gardens, which also accommodate a koi pond and waterfall fountain.
The house has four bedrooms, four bathrooms, a basement gym and a plumbed outbuilding ample enough to use as a living space.
