Nestled behind cascading native gardens on Benmore Terrace, the contemporary, open-plan Warwick Evans House is back on the market, $1 million less that it was listed for last year.

The famed architect’s son Frank Lloyd Wright Jr. designed the Warwick Evans House in 1936 for musician Charles Warwick Evans, co-founder of the London String Quartet. Since then, the four-bedroom, four bathroom home has gone through extensive renovations and enhancements, most recently being re-listed at a discount of almost $1 million.

The 3,161-square-foot Warwick Evans House at 12036 Benmore Terrace was first listed in September 2015 for $5.2 million and pulled off the market in October. Re-listed by Hohnen and Victor Kaminoff of Coldwell Banker Previews International, the house is now going for $4.4 million.

The open plan on the main floor is made up of a series of interconnected living spaces, including a formal dining room, living room, family room, and the master bedroom suite.

The living room flows freely into the dining room, demarcated by a raised floor. According to Victor Kaminoff, the living spaces feature the architect’s signature touches: gleaming Brazilian walnut wood tiles line the floor; overhead, a recessed ceiling with lighting built into the wood-framed soffit at its base; a sandstone and brick fireplace with a copper chimney hood, flanked by cypress wood paneling; and a full wall of steel-framed-window doors that open to the patio and yard.

The newly remodeled kitchen has a marble center island, skylight, farmhouse sink, and built-in breakfast nook.

Matching the design of the living space, a large area of the ceiling above the bed features the same recessed design with built-in lighting. Woodwork and built-ins are also found throughout the home, such as this walk-in closet in the master bedroom, Kaminoff said.

Down the wrought-iron split staircase is the lower level, consisting of an office, gym, and two bedrooms.

Sitting on a half-acre of land, the house is surrounded by a patio of slate flagstone. Adjacent to the patio and opposite the house is a Mayan-inspired fountain amid a koi pond.
