The Lappin House, 1948-49



Recognized as Ellwood’s first completed building, the residence is sited on the rim of a dale affording privacy and treetop vistas to the West. Here, behind the circular drive, in collaboration with designer Pete Peters, both Wrightian and Modernist elements were incorporated into the 2-story design. The coverage of Lappin House in the “Los Angeles Times Home Magazine” is credited with helping launch Ellwood’s career. Includes: Three bedrooms, three and one half baths, dining room, family room addition, pool, spa, and attached 2 carport.
