Lloyd Wright and the Samuel-Navarro House

Fans of Lloyd Wright — son of Frank Lloyd Wright — are getting another shot at owning one of his more eclectic properties.

The Mayan Revival-style property, dubbed Samuel-Navarro House, is being marketed for sale at $4.3 million, the same price it hit the market at in 2016, Curbed reported.

Located on Verde Oak Drive in Los Feliz, the nearly 2,700-square-foot home includes three bedrooms and three bathrooms. A swimming pool and landscaped gardens complete the property.

Oxidized copper accents, which give off a teal color, can be found throughout the home’s exterior.

Built in 1928, the house is rich in Hollywood history. It was originally built for Louis Samuel, the business manager Ramon Novarro, the Mexican film star. Novarro took ownership of the property once he discovered Samuel was embezzling money.

Movie star Diane Keaton then restored the house in the 1990s. She owned the property from 1988 to 1996, records show.

It last traded for $3.8 million in November 2014, according to deed records.
