Ennis Brown and the House on Haunted Hill

One of my favourite sites about weird and curious places is Atlas Obscura; and its always a joy to find a Vincent Price link. In mapping six of Hollywood's finest horror houses, their Cartography of Horror article made Frank Lloyd Wright's 1924 gem, The Ennis Brown, their No1 horror abode.

Located in Los Feliz Hills, the house's exterior was famously used in the opening of William Castle's Emergo gimmick frightener House on Haunted Hill (1959), in which Vincent Price's millionaire Frederick Loren threw a ghost party for his adulterous wife (Carol Omhart).
