About the Sowden House
The Sowden House was built in 1926 by Lloyd Wright (eldest son of Frank Lloyd Wright), for his friends John and Ruth Sowden. The design is purposefully theatrical to cater to the original owners’ aesthetic and lavish Hollywood lifestyle during the Roaring Twenties. Now, the 6,000 square-foot mansion, located on Franklin Avenue in Los Feliz, has been renovated to “evoke a sense of mystery and exoticism”. Featuring a distinct Mayan pyramid-inspired facade, a secluded inner courtyard, and four renovated wings, the Sowden House truly is one-of-a-kind. Every room of the house faces the interior courtyard, which shelters a secluded pool and jacuzzi. Infamous for its distinctive design and colorful history, the Sowden House has hosted everything from photoshoots and non-profit events to films and TV shows. In 2003, the house was listed as a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument.
