David Lena Photography and Iconic Vision
photo by David Lena

The house, as was often stated by Lautner, was his only homage to his mentor Frank Lloyd Wright. This residence demonstrates Lautner’s use of expressive engineering and design to seamlessly integrate the residence into it’s natural environment with essential geometric forms and creating an organic flow between the interior and exterior. The main residence and adjoining guest house share a copper-lined roof and sit high above the city. While only minutes from Sunset Boulevard, the park-like grounds offer a peaceful and quiet refuge from urban life. Inside a large eucalyptus tree grows in between the dramatic bouquet canyon stone supporting wall and the living room’s 16 foot floor-to-ceiling windows and doors which open to views across Los Angeles and beyond. There is a contrast of warm and cool light, like that at dawn and dusk, that fills the house through most of the day. The main residence also includes a Bulthaup stainless steel kitchen and a master bedroom leading to its own private pool and balconies. The Guest house is a second structure with a flexible floor plan offering 3 additional bedrooms and/or an office or media room. The result is the ultimate expression of timeless modernism. The main residence is listed as a California State Monument, is subject to Mills Act tax benefits, and is represented by Private Client Services Realty.
