CBD entrepreneur sells Lloyd Wright masterpiece for $6.16 million

The John Sowden house – a new Mayan gem built by architect Lloyd Wright – has sold hands for $6.16 million in Los Feliz.

One of Southern California’s finest examples of neo-Mayan architecture, the bizarre, striking edifice resembles a temple but has also been compared to a cave or the gaping mouth of a shark big white.

Records show the seller as Dan Goldfarb, a cannabis entrepreneur best known for founding Canna-Pet, which sells hemp products designed for animals. He purchased the iconic property for $4.7 million in 2018 with plans to turn it into a cultural hub for arts and events.

The buyer was Nate Daneshgar, the family that owns Grand Central Market in downtown Los Angeles. He becomes the latest in a long line of notable owners that include its namesake, painter John Sowden, and George Hodel, an LA doctor who is considered a suspect in the Black Dahlia murder case. . As for this infamous relationship, the estate’s website claims that the house “could hold the key” to the unsolved mystery.

Wright – the son of talented architect Frank Lloyd Wright – built the house in 1927 using concrete woven blocks that embody Mayan decorative themes. The house hovers over Franklin Avenue, entering through bronze gates to an impressive tomb-like staircase.

The cave-like atmosphere continues inside, where stone fireplaces fix the living space lined with warm wooden floors. Throughout the 5,600 square foot space, window walls surround the courtyard with pool and spa surrounded by art installations.

With its distinctive look, the mansion has appeared in several films including “LA Confidential” and “The Aviator.” It also claims a place on the National Register of Historic Places.

Ryan Ponce and Sherri Rogers of Compass organized this list. DPP’s Juan Longfellow and Louise Leach represent Daneshgar.
