When life long social advocate Ruth Ross decided to redesign her Spanish-style bungalow it was Eric Lloyd Wright's name that was put forward by a mutual friend, the acclaimed writer Anais Nin
(who was married to Eric's half-brother) and since then the Ross House has become a renowned landmark and Silver Lake real estate gem.
Being surrounded by other notable Silver Lake real estate properties designed by the likes of Richard Neutras and John Lautner, this Lloyd Wright designed house is in good company. Inspired by the spirit of the Southwest, whilst adhering to organic architecture philosophy, the Ross House was intended to be both a home and a gallery for the Ross Collection of Native American and primitive art.
The 1440 square foot home with 2 bedrooms and 3 baths, is perfectly situated in its lush landscaping, bringing the earthiness of nature inside while remaining completely modern. It is a wonderful take on the indoor/outdoor California lifestyle with dramatic views of the lake, floor to ceiling sliding glass doors, and a majestic balcony with built-in seating, ideal for watching those famed sunsets over the Silver Lake reservoir.
