Walk Through Frank Lloyd Wright's Ennis House

The Ennis House is the last of Frank Lloyd Wright's textile block houses in Los Angeles. Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and built by his son, Lloyd, the home has been featured in a number of television episodes and movies such as "The House of Haunted Hill," "Blade Runner" and even "Buffy the Vampire Slayer." Though it's the largest of Wright's textile block homes, the design is not totally of Wright's own making. Escalating costs and differing visions prompted its owners — Charles and Mabel Ennis — to step in and put their own design touches on the house, deviating from Wright's design.
