Compared to some of the sleek trash that is going up in West Hollywood and some parts of Trousdale, this is a - dare I say - deal!?! This is about the same price as the Groucho Marx House by Wallace Neff in a modern style on Hillcrest. There is a really great Neutra down the street from the above li...

So what did happen to that house between this listing: http://www.architectureforsale.com/printable.php?property_ID=587 and the most recent one? I've been interested in this house since that listing was active. Since that listing, there has been some neglect. But I have also learned of some problem...

Thorgusen? Thorguson? Thorgusson?

What do we know about Boulder Thorgusson (sp?) I don't know enough... The name is scattered, and spelled differently everywhere I look. I'm considering buying a home that was designed by him in Los Angeles, one street over from Beverly Hills in West Hollywood. ... or designed by Robert Thorgusen, de...

Anyone know which Neutra (and year) this one is... I'm at my place in the city and my Neutra Complete Works is at my country house, so I'm clueless but just wondering. http://meyler.locations.org/library6180/index.php?mode=album&album=Architectural%2F1512&dispsize=640&start=0&dp=smal...

Laminate is great,

I've worked with Bulthaup kitchen systems, and laminate is one of my favorite finishes!

Amazing house. Amazing. You can see current interiors in the books "Rooms To Inspire" and "LA Modern." It was remodeled by the Sassoon family in the 1990's by designer Larry Totah, who also did a not-so-great job on the Neutra Staller House of 1955, which was more recently remode...

All I know is that Kanye West lives a few houses down, and that the other Kun house is much more famous. Both of which are pieces of useless information. To me, this house (from what little I have seen - drive by and in the "Complete Works") is one of the sexier looking Neutras, sort of li...

Funny that you ask this, I was just wondering the same thing last weekend, and found an inconclusive result. A buddy of mine from Silver Lake said that this house doesn't have a great deal of information, and is nothing like it used to be. For me, the real Schindler gems are the ones that are small....

Great site, and nice listing! The site didn't work on my Mac with Safari either, but did on Firefox. One thing: I'd love to see photos included of the Jordan House by Lautner. That house is one of the sexiest houses that I can think of, but too few photos exist and it is highly underappreciated.

It's not the construction site...it's two houses north of that one.

The house was remodeled in 2001, but I think it was tastefully done.

Harry Gesner

What do you all know of Harry Gesner? I've always found his work to be elusive, and I've only been inside of one of the homes that he designed. He isn't as well known as some of the other big talent in LA. I have always loved the Wave House in Malibu, and crave for pics of the interiors. Do any of y...
