    Frank Lloyd Wright Jr, son of the famed architect, built this home in the hills of Brentwood for cellist and London String Quartet co-founder Charles Warwick Evans in 1936.

    Like many of Wright's Los Angeles designs, the property prioritizes indoor/outdoor connection and rich materials including cypress paneling and Brazilian walnut tile flooring.

    The elevated dining area room looks out onto the half-acre site. In recent years, the house has been restored.

    The house was originally built for Charles Warwick Evans, cofounder of the London String Quartet. Many details throughout are custom.

    The fireplace is copper. The architect's thoughtful use of natural materials is a technique passed down from his father, Frank Lloyd Wright.

    The kitchen is one area of the house that's been updated. The floors are ipe, and the appliances are by Wolf and Sub-Zero.
