Lloyd Wright's Sowden House architectural location rental

an old hollywood oasis in the heart of modern hollywood

the house

Designed in 1926 by Lloyd Wright, Sowden House is a meticulously renovated and updated 6,000 square foot neo-Mayan mansion located near the heart of modern Hollywood. Every room faces the interior courtyard which shelters a secluded pool and jacuzzi surrounded by an immaculate succulent garden and flowering vines. The courtyard doors disappear into the walls to create a continuous indoor/outdoor feel while water and fire features give unity and completion to Wright’s elemental vision. A collection of antiques mixed with contemporary art harmonizes with the original architectural details and Mayan-influenced stone work.

The home features a sprawling living room with a grand piano and dramatic city views, a formal dining room, a reading room with built-in salt water aquarium, office, modern gourmet kitchen, two fireplaces, and two outdoor fire-pits. The master bedroom overlooks the entire courtyard while the master bath provides exceptional comfort in a freestanding spa-soak tub, steam room, and meditation area next to a tranquil Koi pond.

Amenities include a full home-theater system, wireless internet, washer/dryer, and garage parking. 3 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms luxuriously accommodate up to 6 people overnight.
