So much about modern life is subject to rapid change and obsolescence. It’s as if whatever isn’t updated becomes outdated. When it comes to architecture that we consider timeless, authenticity is the key to creating homes that express both enduring beauty and daily vitality. Architect Wade Weissmann has spent the last 20 years designing classically inspired estates of many styles around the world. These estates offer the unexpected, with unique design elements and architectural details that convey the best of American inspiration, while enabling a contemporary lifestyle.

Below, Weissmann shares his top tips for how to create a timeless classic.

• Look to history – Digital image sources such as Pinterest and Houzz are phenomenal resources, but unfortunately, you’ll encounter a lot of “builder detailing” mixed in with great classics. Instead, look to houses built from the late 1800s to 1940. Custom architect-designed homes are good references, as are pattern book houses.

• Include built-ins when possible – reading nooks, window seats, butler’s pantries and bookshelves, as they all evoke a timeless nod to the past.

• All good architecture, regardless of style (classical, modern or vernacular), has nicely proportioned windows and doors, which sit pleasingly in the surrounding wall. Architects are trained in understanding what this means and producing well-proportioned buildings. • The front entry has traditionally been used in great architecture to make a powerful first impression. Use it to create a sense of welcome and a foretaste of the hospitality offered inside.

Let your house speak for you – stories and personalities don’t have an expiration date. Orient spaces toward your favorite views, arrange spaces to entertain in the way you like and choose finishes that make you comfortable. Personalizing your home will prevent it from becoming trapped in the trendy and homogenous.

    You can’t help but feel a change in sensory perception as you cross the city limits and enter the picture-perfect and elegant setting of Beverly Hills. The city’s streets are linedwith couture storefronts, manicured parkways, sparkling clean streets, pinch-me gorgeous vintage homes, and grand mansions, interwoven with contemporary architectural styles, equally as appealing.

    It’s not surprising, with the city’s not-so-modest turn of the century celebrity beginnings, that she is home to the most recognizable zip code (90210) and listed as having some of the most expensive zip codes in the nation. An estimated 34,000 people inhabit this lavish city, spanning 5.7 square miles of luxury real estate, also showcasing iconic and world famous— Rodeo Drive, Beverly Wilshire Hotel, and restaurants by world renowned chef Wolfgang Puck. With the city’s allure for glamour and glitz, she is esteemed with being the most filmed location in the world.

    Beverly Hills is part of the “Platinum Triangle”, which includes the Los Angeles city communities of Bel Air and Holmby Hills. The city’s student population is served by a proprietary school district, with Beverly Hills High School as the sole secondary public education facility, listed in top 100 high schools of California.

    The city’s history in brevity: The land first granted to early feminist, Maria Rita de Valdez, named the land Rancho Rodeo de las Aguas (Gathering of the Waters), aptly for the streams that emptied into the area from surrounding hills and canyons. With each subsequent ownership, came a new use, from lima bean crops, to oil speculation and water utility, coming to rest as an elite housing development. The “Glamour Years” as they are described, began with the construction of the first mansion built by cinema celebrity couple, Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford. And the rest is history, as they say. As more celebrities followed suit, the city responded with a standard for glamour that has endured for decades.

    Everything seems a little bit brighter in Beverly Hills, even on the cloudiest of days.
    The Ennis house is now for sale co-listed with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage and Hilton & Hyland. The buyer will certainly have a tremendous appreciation for architecture and find value in the architectural significance of this property to justify the acquisition. Known by some as the Ennis-Brown House, it is one of the most well-known architectural masterpieces of the 1920s designed by Frank Loyd Wright.

    The Ennis House showcases extraordinary views from downtown Los Angeles to the Pacific Ocean and exquisite ornamentation you can get lost in.

    The Ennis House is currently priced at $23,000,000 as a result of the extensive renovations completed by owner Ronald W. Burkle. It is the last and final of four similarly designed interlocking textile block residences around Los Angeles including La Miniatura in Pasadena, The Storer Residence, and The Freeman House in the Hollywood Hills. The textile blocks were inspired by Maya Temples and the style, therefore, referred to by some as Mayan Revival architecture. The Ennis House can be interestingly compared and contrasted with The Aline Barnsdall Hollyhock House in Hollywood.

    The interlocking concrete blocks were created from decomposed granite on site and can be explored inside and outside the home.

    Offered at $23,000,000 this work of art comes fully furnished. Similar to many of Wright's commissions, the furniture is thoughtfully incorporated into the design and enhances the overall experience for its occupants.

    Frank Loyd Wright designed the Ennis House in 1923, it was then constructed by his son Loyd Wright in 1924. Because of original high costs, Charles Ennis and his wife Mabel, managed the building process themselves late during construction. After taking over they may have deviated from Wright's original design.

    The house was eventually transferred to John Nesbitt who hired Wright to renovate the property in the 1940s. Wright converted a basement storage area into a billiards room and designed a swimming pool at the north terrace. Views from the terraces extend unobstructed from downtown Los Angeles to the Pacific Ocean.

    Not interested in purchasing at the $23,000,000 asking price? That's okay, Marc Anthony Davila encourages you just to make your best offer. Before the most recent renovation, it was sold in 2011 for $4,500,000. When it was listed in 2009, the original list price was set at $15,000,000. Huge price reductions followed and as the final price was recorded at $4,500,000.

    If you would like to discuss purchasing The Ennis House with Marc Anthony Davila, be sure to ask about a possible deed restriction that allows the public to view the property for 12 days each year.

    The Ennis House was included on a historic preservation list in 2005 listing it as one of America's 11 Most Endangered Places. Heavy rains and the Northridge earthquake may have damaged the property over the years before its most recent renovation. The unique textile block design may have had structural instability even before its completion.

    In addition to the homes great architectural history, it has been featured in many movies such as Blade Runner (1982), Rush Hour (1998), The Karate Kid Part III (1989), and many many more including Los Angeles Plays Itself (2003).
