The Derby House, designed by Lloyd Wright in 1926, stands boldly in the foothills of the Angeles National Forest in Glendale. Considered one of Lloyd Wright's greatest achievements, it offers dramatic floor-to-ceiling fireplaces, unique stonework and oak floors. The house, considered to be “one of the landmarks of modern architecture in Southern California,” has been preserved immaculately and updated with perfection.

Frank Lloyd Wright Jr., son of Frank Lloyd Wright, was an acclaimed architect as well as an expert draftsman and an accomplished landscape architect. Lloyd Wright supervised the construction on several of his father’s projects, such as the Ennis, Freeman and Storer houses. His customized gardens create indoor/outdoor concepts that you can see throughout the Derby house. Doorways open to rooftop gardens and a secluded, breathtaking courtyard, filled with lush, mature, towering Oak and Eucalyptus trees, and meandering pathways.
