The gorgeous house (pictured here – and you can take a tour of it here,  was built in 1959.

The current owner bought it in 2004 and says he never even knew who Wright was  – he’s the son of Frank Lloyd Wright and an accomplished modern architect.

According to the Los Angeles Conservancy, the house is located at 504 Paseo del Mar in Palos Verdes Estates, the Moore House was a striking example of modernism in a city dominated by Spanish Colonial Revival and Mediterranean Revival inspired homes.
