Beverly Hills, CA - John Galich of Rodeo Realty Sunset Strip holds a stunning listing designed by one of Los Angeles most iconic and renowned architects. This home was built by an iconic one-time apprentice of Frank Lloyd Wright, John Lautner, who has designed more than 200 buildings throughout the country. His residential projects have become some of the most sought after homes in the country. This particular home was titled as one of LA’s most iconic and innovative architectural designs. Built in 1948, for composer Foster Carling, this home stands as one of John Lautners’ earliest and most significant works. Situated on a hillside above Mulholland, the property has views of downtown and across the city and valley. The home has innovative features that are still exciting today, including a pool that flows from the exterior into the living room, separated by a retracting wall of glass. Controls move both the glass wall and an entire living room section and built-in sofa, allowing it to swing out into the yard and face the downtown skyline. The incredible hexagonal living space is free of internal columns and formed by external steel beams. This was Lautner's first of many collaborations with yacht builder, John De La Vaux and signature details include old-growth redwood planking, raised fireplace, polished concrete floors, built-in furniture and detailed woodwork throughout.
