Try and track down a copy of ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST for May 2005. It featured this house, now owned by David Bohnett -- philanthropist, and founder of the GeoCities Web site.

Many US libraries subscribe to this and hold back copies.

Also, try a web search with "gary cooper google earth" as there are folks out there now listing celebrity and/or architectural home links for Google Earth.[/url]

Hi Scowsa,
Thanks for the reply. I will try what you recommended. Would you know any libraries in Los Angeles area. I generally stay Dowtown when in LAX

The Gary Cooper house was also feature on an episode of PBS' This Old House series when they were doing the modern house in the Boston area (maybe Cambridge). It was a nice little 5 minute segment.

And nicely restored by architect Mark Rios. Go to his website . HIs site is rather hard to navigate, but find residential projects and click on Baroda house.

Thanks to all for all information. I am about to start our own house and looking at many modern houses for ideas. I also like the Barcelona House with the floating ceiling and walls for support.
When I am next in Lax I will be driving around looking at the many buildings you have. It would be great to look at floor plans of the Gary Cooper house. Do you think they would be on file somewhere?
Thanks Again
Shane

I have had a look at the Rois site thanks, beautiful home. I have just seen the episode of this old house this is what sent me on my mission to find out more, I saw it on cable late one night. You have all been very helpful. The time change to down under is a bit of a drag but its great to wake up ang get all this wonderful info while having a cup of tea. We have quiet big modern theme here in Sydney. There are a lot of great buildings and restorations as well. As for interiors and furniture there are to many to mention.
